MASTER OT J061701.22-475148.0 discovery - possible SuperNova in ESO206-005 galaxy at z=0.0379

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 06h 17m 01.22s -47d 51m 48.0s on 2015-04-08.81484 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.8m (limit 19.4m). The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference images without OT on 2015-03-10.809 with unfiltered m_lim=19.9, and on 2015-01-12.99428 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.9m.

This PSN is in 24"E and 1.4"S from the ESO206-005 galaxy with known vhel=11377.

The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/061701.22-475148.0.png

Spectral observations are required.
