HiTS, the High Cadence Transient Survey (see ATELs #5949, #7099), reports the discovery of additional supernova candidates detected using an image subtraction / classification pipeline developed at the Center for Mathematical Modelling (CMM) in collaboration with the Millennium Institute for Astrophysics (MAS). Observations were performed on the 4m Blanco Telescope at Cerro Tololo (CTIO) from 2015-02-17 to 2015-03-13. The data analysis was performed using the National Laboratory for High Performance Computing (NLHPC). Reported magnitudes are based on the difference between our last observations on 2015-03-14 and reference images taken on 2015-02-17. Ages are lower limits based on the difference between our last observation and the first time when the forced photometry on the position of the candidate was larger than three standard deviations.
