MASTER OT J095321.02+202721.2 - PSN
MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 09h 53m 21.02s +20d 27m 21.2s on 2014-10-08.05230 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 15.9m (limit 18.1m). The OT is seen in 7 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2014-03-24.83318 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.7m.
The OT is located 17" west and 26" north of the center of the starburst galaxy 2MASX J09532220+2026551 = SDSS J095322.22+202654.9 (z=0.0200). There is nothing at the position of the OT on SDSS images to the limiting magnitude ~23.5.
Spectral observations are required. The discovery and reference images are available at: http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/095321.02202721.2.png
