SN 2001C : 14th mag supernova

SN 2001C was discovered by T. Puckett and his colleague A. Sehgal on January 4.09 UT at mag 14.7. The location is about 15" east and 6" south of the center of the tilted spiral galaxy PGC 19975. The recession velocity of the host galaxy is 3280 km/s, so the expected SN Ia maximum is about mag 14.8 (vsnet-campaign-sn 126).
