     S. Nakano, Center for Astrophysics, has identified this long-
lost minor planet with 1986 ES2, an object observed at Palomar on
Mar. 6 and 8 (see MPC 11316).  He also identified it with the
single observations of 1957 UC and 1981 WL8 and possibly with the
approximate observation of 1963 GD.  His improved orbital elements
will be given on the Dec. 16 MPCs.  With the recovery also of
(1179) Mally (see IAUC 4278), this reduces the lost numbered minor
planets to four (out of a total of 3516).

     H. Kosai, Tokyo Astronomical Observatory, telexes that Mitsuri
Suzuki, Ena City, Gifu, discovered a nova of mpv = 8.0 (200-mm
camera, Tri-X film, green filter) on Dec. 5.44 UT at  R.A.  = 23h09m.5,
Decl. = +47 10' (equinox 1950.0).  Images were subsequently identified
by M. Honda, Kurashiki, on Dec. 4.40 and 5.39, at mag 8 and 7.5
(Tri-X film), respectively, and by M. Wakuda on Dec. 4.4.  The
object was not present on Honda's films on Dec. 2.
     Kosai also reports that spectroscopic observations by Y.
Norimoto at the Okayama Station on Dec. 8.40 UT showed strong
emissions of H alpha and H beta with blue-shifted absorption.  There were
other emissions near 500 nm, and the magnitude was V about 7.

     Visual magnitude estimates: Sept. 10.89, 11.2 (R. Monella,

     Further total visual magnitude estimates: Nov. 3.08 UT, 13.4:
(R. Fleet, Harare, Zimbabwe, 0.35-m reflector); 4.83, 13.1 (J.
Kobayashi, Kumamoto, Japan, 0.31-m reflector); 10.83, 12.9 (

reflector); 30.84, 12.5 (Y. Sugiyama, Hiratsuka, Japan, 0.16-m
reflector); Dec. 3.54, 11.8 (Morris); 4.83, 12.3 (Sugiyama).
