     C. Pollas, Observatoire de la Cote d'Azur, reports his discovery
with the 0.9-m Schmidt telescope of a supernova located at R.A.
= 13h27m18s.34, Decl. = +32o01'52".7 (equinox 2000.0), which is
18".9 east and 2".0 north of the center of NGC 5157.  A V plate
taken on Mar. 26.05 UT shows the object at mag 20.0, while a B
plate taken on Apr. 4.04 shows it at mag 19.5.  Nothing is present
at the position of SN 1995L on two films (limiting mag 22) obtained
in 1994 Apr.  A nearby star (mag about 17) is at position end
figures 09s.04, 02'47".4.  P. Garnavich, A. Riess, and P. Challis,
Center for Astrophysics, report that a CCD image taken by R. Jansen
with the 1.2-m telescope at Mt. Hopkins on Apr. 8.3 shows the
supernova at V = 19.2 +/- 0.1.  A. V. Filippenko, A. J. Barth, and
D. K. Stevens, University of California at Berkeley, report that
preliminary inspection of an uncalibrated CCD spectrum (range 426-
703 nm, resolution 0.7 nm) obtained on Apr. 22 UT with the 3-m
Shane reflector at Lick Observatory reveals that the object is a
supernova, most likely of type Ia several months past maximum
brightness.  The recession velocity of the host galaxy, measured
from narrow emission lines in the nucleus, is 7260 km/s.

     A. Vagnozzi, G. Piermarini, and V. Russo, S. Lucia Observatory,
Stroncone, Italy, report the following precise position for SN
1995F from a pre-discovery CCD image obtained on Feb. 6.918 UT,
when the object's unfiltered magnitude was 14.3 (derived using GSC
comparison stars):  R.A. = 9h04m57s.40, Decl. = +59o55'58".7 (
equinox 2000.0).

     F. Elizalde, Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE),
Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil; F. Jablonski, Laboratorio Nacional de
Astrofisica (LNA), Itajuba; D. Cieslinski, INPE; and R. Baptista,
Space Telescope Science Institute, report the following photometry
obtained at the LNA's Zeiss 0.6-m telescope on Apr. 2:  V = 11.22
(0.02), U-B = -0.23(0.03), B-V = +0.90(0.03), V-R = +0.78(0.02),
R-I = +0.71(0.01).  Simultaneous spectroscopy (range 590-625 nm,
resolution 0.25 nm) obtained with the LNA 1.6-m telescope (+ Boller
& Chivens spectrograph + CCD) confirms the description of Munari et
al. (IAUC 6151), showing broad double-peaked H-alpha and He I lines
with many weak lines of Fe II.
