SUPERNOVA 2002bo IN NGC 3190
     The Central Bureau has received independent reports of the
discovery of a supernova in NGC 3190 by Paulo Cacella, Brasilia,
Brazil, on a CCD image taken on Mar. 9.08 UT with a 0.25-m
reflector (at mag 16-17), and by Yoji Hirose, Chigasaki, Kanagawa-
ken, Japan, on seven unfiltered CCD frames taken about Mar. 9.505
with a 0.25-cm reflector (mag 15.5; communicated by S. Nakano,
Sumoto, Japan).  Nakano also forwards the following precise
position, measured by Y. Kushida from an unfiltered CCD image taken
by R. Kushida at Yatsugatake South Base Observatory on Mar. 9.604
(with SN 2002bo at mag 14.6) with a 0.40-m reflector:  R.A. =
10h18m06s.51, Decl. = +21o49'41".7 (equinox 2000.0), or 11".6 east
and 14".2 south of the galaxy's center; nothing is visible at this
location on the Digitized Sky Survey or on Kushida's numerous
images of this galaxy dating back to 1995, including 2002 Feb. 14
(limiting mag 18).  Hirose reported the new object to be 17" east
and 23" south of the center of NGC 3190, and Cacella provided
position end figures 06s.45, 40".2.  W. D. Li, University of
California at Berkeley, reports that SN 2002bo is present on a CCD
image obtained with the Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope on Mar.
9.4 at mag about 16; he provides position end figures 06s.52,
41".2.  A KAIT image taken on Mar. 2.4 showed nothing at this
position (limiting mag about 19.0).

SUPERNOVA 2002bp IN UGC 6332
     T. Puckett and A. Langoussis, Mountain Town, GA, report the
discovery of an apparent supernova (mag 18.6) on an unfiltered CCD
frame (limiting mag 20.3) taken with the Puckett Observatory 0.60-m
automated supernova patrol telescope on Mar. 8.16 UT.  The new
object is located at R.A. = 11h19m18s.20, Decl. = +20o48'23".1
(equinox 2000.0), which is 21".3 east and 26".0 south of the center
of UGC 6332.  SN 2002bp was confirmed on CCD frames taken on Mar.
9.14, but it is not present on images taken by Puckett on 2001 Mar.
19, 28, and May 15 (limiting mag about 20.5) or on Palomar Sky
Survey images taken on 1995 Mar. 26 (limiting mag about 21.0), 1992
May 1 (limiting mag about 21.0), and 1955 Mar. 22 (limiting mag
about 20.0).

     Photoelectric photometry by P. Kilmartin and A. C. Gilmore,
Mt. John Observatory:  Mar. 4.413 UT, V = 11.16, U-B = -0.39, B-V
= +0.42, V-R = +0.32, V-I = +0.69; 5.403, 11.29, -0.52, +0.35,
+0.37, +0.79.
