The KAIT team discovered mag 15 SN Ia in the evening sky. The position is 0".6 east and 1".2 south of the nucleus of the odd shaped spiral? galaxy IC 1481. The spectroscopy on Nov. 29 has revealed that this SN is normal type Ia around the maximum light. The recession velocity of the host is 6118 km/s from NED, so the expected maximum is mag 16.2 (vsnet-campaign-sn 120).
