Subject: SN in NGC 5033
This is just a heads-up about a supernova found in the
bright galaxy NGC 5033.  At the moment it is reported to be
faint, but if it turns out to be a type Ia event, then it
could get up to mag. 12 or so.  The designation is SN
2001gd, location is:  13 13 23.9  +36 38 18 (2000), which
is 3'.4 north-northwest of the galaxy center. Obviously
this is a predawn object.  Magnitudes given on IAUC 7761
indicate mag. 16.5 to 17.5, but if this is really a
supernova, then it has to get up to at least mag. 13 and
possibly brighter.
Like a lot of supernovae, this was found by an amateur.
