     S. Nakano, Sumoto, Japan, reports the discovery of a possible
nova by Kesao Takamizawa, Saku-machi, Nagano-ken, on two T-Max 400
films taken Feb. 7.839 and 7.842 UT using a 10-cm f/4.0 lens.  Y.
Kushida, Yatsugatake South Base Observatory, provides the following
position:  R.A. = 19h05m26s.57, Decl. = -1o42'03".5.  Takamizawa
notes that there is no image brighter than mag 12-14 at this
position on films taken on 1994 May 12, June 14, and Oct. 23; there
is a nearby star of mag 12.1.  Available magnitude estimates, the
last two being visual estimates supplied by E. Waagen, AAVSO:  Feb.
7.839, 8.1 (Takamizawa); 8.854, 8.4 (Takamizawa); 8.873, 7.5:
(Kushida); 9.435, 8.2 (C. Scovil, Stamford, CT); 9.531, 8.5 (P.
Collins, Scottsdale, AZ).  Collins notes that the star has a reddish

     Robert H. McNaught, Anglo-Australian Observatory, reports his
discovery of an apparent supernova (mag about 17.5) on a U.K.
Schmidt Telescope (UKST) R plate taken by K. S. Russell on Feb.
8.74 UT.  SN 1995C is located at R.A. = 12h04m02s.52, Decl. =
-31o36'02".3 (equinox 2000.0, uncertainty 0".2 in R.A. and 0".4 in
Decl.), which is 14".7 east and 8".5 south of the galaxy's center.
The object does not appear on an ESO R survey plate or on a UKST R
plate taken on 1993 May 23.  Confirmation was made via an unfiltered
CCD image taken Feb. 9.56 by McNaught and D. J. Asher with the 1.0-
m telescope at Siding Spring Observatory.  A nearby star of mag R
about 18 has position end figures 03s.07, 26".0.

     Total visual magnitude estimates:  Jan. 27.89 UT, 9.7 (G. A.
Milani, Cima Ekar, Italy, 20x80 binoculars); 30.24, 10.1 (C. S.
Morris, Whitaker Peak, CA, 0.26-m reflector); Feb. 3.15, 10.4 (A.
Hale, near Chaparral, NM, 0.2-m reflector); 8.10, 10.7 (C. E. Spratt,
Victoria, BC, 0.20-m reflector).

     Total visual magnitude estimates by Morris at Whitaker Peak:
Jan. 2.21 UT, 11.8; Feb. 1.18, 13.3.
