     R. Johnson, M. Modjaz and W. D. Li, University of California at
Berkeley, on behalf of the Lick Observatory Supernova Search (cf. IAUC
6627, 7126), report the discovery with the 0.8-m Katzman Automatic Imaging
Telescope (KAIT) of an apparent nova in M31 (NGC 224).  The nova was
discovered and confirmed on unfiltered images taken on Aug. 10.4 UT
(mag about 15.6) and Aug. 11.4 UT (mag about 16.8).  The new object is
located at R.A. = 00h42m22s.1, Decl. = +41o13'23'' (equinox 2000.0).
A KAIT image of the same field on Aug. 9.4 UT (limiting mag about 19.0)
showed nothing at the position of the nova. A finding chart can be found at
