MASTER OT J141023.42-431843.7 discovery - bright PSN in bright spiral NGC5483

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 349171 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 14h 10m 23.42s -43d 18m 43.7s on 2015-12-15.06619 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 14.4m (limit 18.7m).

The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2015-04-26.03615 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.5m.

This PSN is in 17.6W 45N from the center of NGC5483 galaxy (1771km/s, 11.9mag)

Spectral observations are required.
