MASTER OT J030600.23-015444.8 - possible supernova in PGC 1106570

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 03h 06m 00.23s -01d 54m 44.8s on 2014-09-22.02903 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 19.1m (limit 19.9m). The OT is seen in 2 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2012-09-20.04362 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 20.0m. The object was confirmed by MASTER-Tunka on 2014-09-23.776 UT at unfiltered magnitude 18.5.

The new object is located 1" west and 8" north of the nucleus of galaxy PGC 1106570 with unknown redshift. Spectral confirmation is required. The discovery and reference images by MASTER-Kislovodsk are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/030600.23-015444.8.png and MASTER-Tunka confirmation image at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/J030600-015444-MASTER-Tunka-140923.png
