MASTER OT J145900.85+494847.6 - Supernova in NGC 5818
MASTER-Amur auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 14h 59m 00.85s +49d 48m 47.6s on 2013-12-26.79804 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.2m (limit 17.8m). The OT is seen in 6 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2011-03-24.72685 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.7m.
The OT is located 24" east and 29" south of the center of galaxy NGC 5818 (z=0.0262). No supernovae were found in this galaxy before. Distance modulus (m-M) is 35.37, according to HyperLeda. Thus the absolute magnitude of MASTER OT J145900.85+494847.6 is about -19.2, close to that of standard Type Ia SNe at maximum brightness.
The object has been submitted to CBAT TOCP as PSN J14590085+4948476. Spectral confirmation is required. The discovery and reference images are available at: http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/145900.85494847.6.png
