SUPERNOVA 2002ho IN NGC 4210
     Further to IAUC 8009, T. Boles reports the discovery of
another apparent supernova (mag 17.0) on an unfiltered CCD image
taken on Nov. 5.130 UT.  The new object is located at R.A. =
12h15m17s.97, Decl. = +65o58'55".1, which is approximately 12".9
east and 12".2 south of the center of NGC 4210.  SN 2002ho was
confirmed on a CCD image taken by M. Schwartz, Cottage Grove, OR,
with the 0.82-m Tenagra telescope on Nov. 7.526; Boles measured mag
16.8 and position end figures 18s.01, 54".8 from Schwartz' image.
SN 2002ho is not present on Boles' images from Apr. 3 (limiting mag
18.5), 13, or May 27, and it is not present on Palomar Sky Survey
red and blue plates.


SUPERNOVA 2002hl IN NGC 3665
     Further to IAUC 8009, G. Pignata and F. Patat, on behalf of
the ERTN, report that a full reduction of a spectrum (range
380-880 nm; resolution 1.1 nm) of SN 2002hl (IAUC 8008), obtained
at Calar Alto on Nov. 5.15 UT with the 2.2-m reflector (+ CAFOS),
shows that this object is a typical type-Ia supernova, about 2
months after maximum light, very similar to SN 1994D at a
comparable phase (Patat et al. 1996, MNRAS 278, 111).
     R. Foley, W. Li, and A. V. Filippenko, UCB, report that
inspection of a CCD spectrum (range 310-1000 nm) of SN 2002hl,
obtained on Nov. 6 UT with the Shane 3-m reflector at Lick
Observatory, shows it to be a type-Ia supernova, about a month past
maximum brightness.
