SN 2000fb

According to IAUC 7536, R. Chassagne discovered a supernova (mag 15.8) on November 29 (vsnet-campaign-sn 123). H. Yamaoka wrote in [vsnet-campaign-sn 124] that the offset from the nucleus of the host barred-spiral galaxy ESO 205-G11 is about 5" east and 25" north (because of the poor cataloged position of the galaxy, the offset reported on IAUC is somewhat erroneous). According to the NED, the recession velocity of the host galaxy is 8600 km/s, from which the expected maximum of normal SN Ia is about mag 17.
