SN 2000eo

IAUC 7524 informed the discovery of several SNe by CTIO search group. Among them, SN 2000eo is the nearest and has become quite bright. The position is about 12" west and 21" south of the nucleus of the host barred-spiral ((R')SB(r)a pec?) galaxy MCG -2-9-3. The spectrum taken on November 20 shows the blue continuum with narrow hydrogen Balmar emission lines, which indicate that it seems to be a type IIn SN in the early phase. The recession velocity of the host galaxy is about 3000 km/s, which indicate that the typical SNeIa on this galaxy will reach mag about 14.7 at their maximum (vsnet-campaign-sn 112).
