The host galaxy is NGC 4636

Discovered January 12th by Koichi Itagaki magn: 15. but looking at the spectre that was before the maximum.

Today early in the cold morning my estimation was +- 12.6/13.0, here's the sketch.

Michel,

 

Excellent capture and record of this spectacular event.

 A nova are exciting  and a supernova is super exciting.

Thanks for posting.

 

Frank :)
