MASTER OT J221829.51-024708.5 - possible superluminous supernova in Sloan galaxy

MASTER-IAC auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 22h 18m 29.51s -02d 47m 08.5s on 2015-09-05.9849 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.2m (limit 19.9m). There are 3 images with OT (2015-09-05.9849, 05.992, 05.0000694UT) with m_OT=18.2. There is 3 images in MASTER-SAAO database on 2015-09-01.916, 01.932UT, with unfiltered limit 18.9m with marginally seen PSN. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference image without OT on 2011-11-19.7066 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.9m.

There is only SDSS J221829.48-024708.9 galaxy (inside 5" in VIZIER database) in 0.5" with Green 22.3m, Red 21.9m, UV 23.4m
