This SN sus [PSN J16154486+3157477], as yet unclassified posted on Bright SN, discovered by SN hunter colleague Ron Arbour in UK last Wednesday @ mag 16.5 in the tiny constellation of Corona Borealis in same region of sky as 'bright' SN2012ei in Bootes. Well done Ron :grin:

Nytecam, thanks for the info. I'll try to get an image of it tonight from the SLOOH Observatory.

Unfortunetly I can't see the PSN as the galaxy, in my image, is over exposed. :crazy:
