SUPERNOVA 1994T IN ANONYMOUS GALAXY
     Corrigendum.  P. Challis, Center for Astrophysics, notes that
the position of the supernova reported on IAUC 6007 was calculated
incorrectly; the correct position is R.A. = 13h18m56s.16, Decl. =
-1o53'15".0 (equinox 1950.0), and the galaxy's center has end
figures 55s.95, 02".2.


VERY LARGE ARRAY SKY SURVEY
     D. Finley, National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), writes:
"The first radio maps of the sky produced by the 1.4-GHz NRAO Very
Large Array Sky Survey (NVSS) now are available to the astronomical
community.  Observations for the NVSS began in 1993 September and
are planned to cover the sky north of Decl. = -40 deg (82 percent
of the celestial sphere) before the end of 1996.  The data products
of the NVSS are being released as soon as they are produced and
verified.  All large NVSS maps that have been verified are available
by anonymous FTP, from the host 'gibbon.cv.nrao.edu'.  The NVSS
files are in the directory 'pub/nvss'.  Users should first obtain
the README file for a description of the data products.  The
information also may be accessed via WWW.  The NRAO master home page
URL is 'http://info.aoc.nrao.edu'.  If you have any questions or
comments, please contact J. Condon by email at Internet address
'jcondon@nrao.edu' or by telephone at 804-296-0322."

     A. C. Gilmore and P. M. Kilmartin, Mount John University
Observatory, report additional preliminary photometry (cf. IAUC
6002):  June 5.657 UT, V = 8.73, U-B = -0.29, B-V = +0.46, V-Rc =
