SUPERNOVA 2004G IN NGC 5668
     S. Nakano, Sumoto, Japan, reports the discovery by R. Kushida
(Yatsugatake South Base Observatory) of an apparent supernova (mag
17.2) on numerous unfiltered CCD frames taken around Jan. 19.86 UT
with a 0.40-m f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain reflector.  Y. Kushida
provides the following measurement for the new object:  R.A. =
14h33m21s.40, Decl. = +4o26'49".5 (equinox 2000.0), which is 43"
west and 12".5 south of the center of NGC 5668.  Nothing was
visible on numerous past frames taken by R. Kushida, the most
recent having been made on 2003 Apr. 8 (limiting mag 18).  A
confirming image was obtained by K. Itagaki (Teppo-cho, Yamagata,
Japan) on Jan. 20.722, showing SN 2004G at unfiltered mag 17.5 and
at position end figures 21s.39, 50".1.  Itagaki also found a
prediscovery image of the new object at mag 16.8 on Jan. 11.78;
nothing was visible on an image taken by Itagaki on 2001 May 28
(limiting mag 18.5).  Supernovae 1952G and 1954B also occurred in
this galaxy.


SUPERNOVAE 2004H, 2004I, AND 2004J
     Further to IAUC 8271, B. Swift, J. Burket, J. Graham, R. J.
Foley, and W. Li report the LOSS discovery of three apparent
supernovae on unfiltered KAIT images:

SN      2004 UT        R.A.  (2000.0)  Decl.   Mag.     Offset
2004H   Jan. 17.5    11 33 59.77  +49 03 46.5  17.6   5".9 E, 3".5 N
2004I   Jan. 18.1     2 43 31.23  + 0 18 30.7  17.2   1".1 W, 6".4 N
2004J   Jan. 19.2     5 46 32.18  -17 46 53.0  17.7   8".5 W, 1".8 N

Additional unfiltered KAIT magnitudes:  SN 2004H in IC 708, 2004
Jan. 2.5 UT, [18.5; Jan. 19.5, 17.6.  SN 2004I in NGC 1072, 2003
Nov. 21.1, [19.0; 2004 Jan. 19.1, 17.1.  SN 2004J in ESO 554-G33,
2003 Nov. 18.2, [18.5; 2004 Jan. 20.3, 17.5.


POSSIBLE NOVA IN NGC 205
     Further to IAUC 8267, J. D. Neill reports the discovery on CCD
images of a possible nova (mag V = 19.6 on Jan. 17.146 UT and V =
19.7 on Jan. 18.141) located at R.A. = 0h40m15s.24, Decl. =
+41o37'29".9 (equinox 2000.0), which is approximately 76".9 west
and 217".2 south of the center of NGC 205.  The new object is
present on images back to 2003 Dec. 25, but not on images taken on
Dec. 21 (limiting mag 20.5) and earlier or on Palomar Sky Survey
plates.
