The OGLE-IV Transient Search (Wyrzykowski et al. 2014 arXiv:1409.1095, Kozlowski et al. 2013) reports the discovery of 9 new on-going candidates for transients. Most of them appeared near or on top of apparent galaxies and their light curves resemble those of supernovae near or after their peak brightness.
