MASTER OT J050727.73-132416.1 discovery - PSN in PGC938372

MASTER-IAC auto-detection system( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 05h 07m 27.73s -13d 24m 16.1s on 2016-09-06.23199 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.2m (limit 19.4m).
The OT is seen in 2 images in MASTER-SAAO, and 2 images at MASTER-OAFA on 2016-09-06 07:28:50UT.
There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference image without OT on 2016-02-25.95875 UT with 18.5m unfiltered magnitude limit (MASTER-SAAO).
Spectral observations are required.
The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/050727.73-132416.1.png

This PSN is in 10.7"E, 12"N from the center of spiral PGC938372 (NED: 147Mpc, Imag=14.5)
