According to IAUC 7658, the KAIT team discovered SN 2001da
on July 9 at mag about 16.5, and confirmed on the next day when
SN was about 0.2 mag brighter. The position is about 9" east
and 3" south of the nucleus of the spiral galaxy NGC 7780.
NGC 7780 is a member of a loose group of galaxies. The recession
velocity of this group is around 5200 km/s, thus the expected
maximum of typical SN Ia is about mag 16.0 or slightly brighter
