Zhijian Xu(Nanjing,Jiangsu,China) and Xing Gao (Urumqi,Xinjiang,China), report the discovery of a possible supernova (mag approximately 17.4) on a 40-s survey image (limiting mag about 18.5)taken by Xing Gao in Xingming ObservationSky Survey(C42) around Nov. 12.55094 UT. using an unfiltered CCD ( + Celestron C14 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope D=350-mm @f/6.9 ). The new object approximately located at R.A. =19h 07m 00s.73 Decl.=+29<00'16".6(equinox 2000.0). Which is about 34.5" west and 6.5" south of the center of the UGC 11404.
