SN 2001N

SN 2001N was discovered and confirmed on Jan. 21.4 UT (mag 163:C) and Jan. 22.4 UT (mag 162:C), respectingly. The location is very close (3" SE) of the bright nucleus of a face-on spiral (SA(r)b) galaxy NGC 3327. The recession velocity of the host galaxy is 6303 km/s, so SN 2001N was discovered as bright as the maximum of a normal SN Ia (vsnet-campaign-sn 139).
