Supernovae 2005dd, 2005de, and 2005df.


Abstract (from CDS):

R. Evans, Hazelbrook, N.S.W., reports his visual discovery of an apparent supernova (mag about 13.8) with a 0.31-m reflector on Aug. 4.625 UT. SN 2005df, which is about 15" east and 40" north of the center of NGC 1559, was not visible on July 29.6 (limiting mag 15.0), and nothing appears at this location to mag about 19 on the European Southern Observatory 'B' Survey or on an image of the galaxy in Wassilieff's CCD Atlas. Evans also found SNe 1984J and 1986L in NGC 1559. A. Gilmore, Mount John Observatory, reports the new object at R = 13.7 on a 10-s CCD image taken with the 0.6-m f/6.4 reflector on Aug. 5.44, providing the following precise position for SN 2005df: R.A. = 4h17m37s.85, Decl. = -62o46'09".5 (equinox 2000.0); nothing is visible at this location on a Digital Sky Survey image.
