POSSIBLE SUPERNOVA IN AN ANONYMOUS GALAXY
Zhangwei Jin(Ningbo, Zhejiang, China) and Xing Gao (Urumqi, Xinjiang, China),
report the discovery of a possible supernova (mag 15.8 at discovery mag) on
a 40-s survey image (limiting mag about 19.5)taken by Xing Gao in Xingming
ObservationSky Survey(C42) around Dec. 27.71566 UT, 2014. using an unfilted
CCD ( + Celestron C14 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope D=350-mm @f/6.9 ).the new
object approximately located at R.A. =09h 33m 03s.33 Decl.=+59กใ40'44".5
(equinox 2000.0). Which is about 2.6" west and 2" south of the center of
