Supernova 2008ak in UGC 2519.


Abstract (from CDS):

T. Boles, Coddenham, England, reports the discovery of an apparent supernova (mag 18.5) on an unfiltered CCD image taken on Feb. 12.774 UT with a 0.35-m reflector; confirming images obtained on Feb. 15.766 yield mag 18.6. The new object is located at R.A. = 3h09m25s.20 ± 0s.03, Decl. = +80o07'48".4 ± 0".1 (equinox 2000.0), which is approximately 17".0 east and 1".8 south of the center of UGC 2519. Boles measures end figures 25s.01, 48".0 from a confirming image acquired by E. Pettarin (Farra d'Isonzo, Italy, 0.40-m reflector) on Feb. 14.743. Nothing is present at this position on Boles' images from 2007 Nov. 15 and Dec. 16 (limiting mag 19.5) or on Digitized Sky Survey plates from 1994 Oct. 10 (limiting red mag 20.5) and 1994 Oct. 5 (limiting blue mag 21.0).
