MASTER OT J111920.95+724857.3 - possible Supernova
MASTER-Amur auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 11h 19m 20.95s +72d 48m 57.3s on 2014-03-03.60984 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 15.4m (limit 18.1m). The OT is seen in 5 images. There is no minor planet at this place. The OT was already present near the edge of FOV on survey images from the same telescope on 2014-03-02.548 UT at unfiltered magnitude 15.2m (limit 18.1m). We have reference image without OT on 2011-11-20.69198 UT with magnitude limit in R filter 18.6m.
The OT is located 11" east and 29" south of the center of galaxy PGC 34635 = MCG+12-11-015 (z=0.0222).
Spectral confirmation is required. Discovery, confirmation and reference images are available at: http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/111920.95724857.3.png
