Abstract (from CDS):

[NOTE: This text replaces that on CBET 3275 (erratum; SN 1983V spectral type)]

A. Klotz, Observatoire de Haute Provence, on behalf of the TAROT Collaboration, reports the discovery of an apparent supernova (mag about 15.6) on two 30-s unfiltered public images from the 0.25-m robotic telescope "TAROT" at La Silla, Chile, taken on Oct. 27.05 UT. The new object is located at R.A. = 3h33m35s.99, Decl. = -36o07'37".7 (equinox 2000.0), which is 3" west and 52" north of the nucleus of NGC 1365. Klotz has posted images at website URL The variable was designated PSN J03333599-3607377 when it was posted at the Central Bureau's TOCP webpage and is here designated SN 2012fr based on the spectroscopic confirmation reported below. Supernova 1957C, the type-Ic supernova 1983V (Clocchiatti 1997, Ap.J. 483, 67), and the type-IIP supernova 2001du (IAUC 7704) also appeared in NGC 1365. Additional CCD magnitudes for 2012fr (unfiltered unless noted otherwise): Oct. 19.37, [19.2 (Klotz); 24.02, [19.3 (Jonathan Normand, France; stacked R-band images taken with a 60-cm telescope at the Observatoire des Makes, Reunion Island; via Klotz); 24.05, [15.8 (Klotz); 27.125, 16.0 (Emmanuel Conseil, France; images obtained with the 0.5-m Slooh Space Camera robotic telescope on Canaria Island; via Klotz); 28.36, 15.1 (Stuart Parker, Oxford, Canterbury, New Zealand; Celestron C14 f/6.3 telescope + ST10 camera; poor seeing conditions; position end figures 36s.22, 35".6; image posted at the following website URL:; 29.149, R = 15.46 ± 0.03 (Joaquin Fabrega and Alain Maury; 30-cm f/6.7 telescope + STL11000 camera at the Observatorio Panameno, San Pedro de Atacama, Chile; position end figures 36s.25, 35".1); 29.22, B = 14.69, V = 14.27, R = 14.02 (Klotz; magnitudes calibrated using sixteen LONEOS catalogue stars in the nearby field of NGC 1316); 30.22, B = 13.96, V = 13.78, R = 13.64 (Klotz).
