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 '
