S/2003 J 22
     Further to IAUC 8138, the discovery of a new satellite of
Jupiter has been reported on CCD images taken with the 3.6-m
Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope and the 2.2-m University of Hawaii
reflector by teams led by S. S. Sheppard and by B. Gladman.
Astrometry, preliminary orbital elements by B. G. Marsden, and an
ephemeris appear on MPEC 2004-B41 (e = 0.23, i = 151 deg, P = 640
days, H = 16.4).


SUPERNOVAE 2004M, 2004N, AND 2004O
     A. Udalski, Warsaw University Observatory, on behalf of the
OGLE-III survey team, reports the discovery with the OGLE/NOOS
transient detection system (Udalski 2003, Acta Astron. 53, 291) of
three apparent supernovae near galaxies located behind the
Magellanic-Cloud halo.

COMETS C/2003 B2, C/2003 C1, AND C/2003 D1 (SOHO)
     Further to IAUC 8269, K. Battams reports measures of
additional Kreutz comets found on SOHO C3 website images by M.
Oates (C/2003 B2) and X. Leprette (C/2003 C1 and C/2003 D1).
Reduced positions and orbital elements by B. G. Marsden appear on
MPEC 2004-B34.
