SUPERNOVA 2004db IN NGC 7377
     T. Matheson, P. Challis, and R. Kirshner, Harvard-Smithsonian
Center for Astrophysics, report that a spectrum (range 340-730 nm)
of SN 2004db ("Possible Supernova in NGC 7377" announced on IAUC
8367), obtained by J. Huchra on July 10.46 UT with the F. L.
Whipple Observatory 1.5-m telescope (+ FAST spectrograph), shows it
to be a type-Ia supernova several weeks past maximum.


SUPERNOVA 2004dc IN IC 1504
     Further to IAUC 8361, S. Park and W. Li report the LOSS
discovery of an apparent supernova (mag about 19.5) on KAIT images
taken on June 29.46 and 30.40 UT.  SN 2004dc is located at R.A. =
23h41m18s.47, Decl. = +4o01'06".3 (equinox 2000.0), which is 14".8
west and 3".5 north of the nucleus of IC 1504.  A KAIT image taken
on 2003 July 1.45 showed nothing at this position (limiting mag
about 20.0).
     R. J. Foley, F. J. D. Serduke, W. Li, and A. V. Filippenko,
University of California, Berkeley, report that inspection of CCD
spectra (range 330-1000 nm), obtained on July 11 UT with the Shane
3-m telescope at Lick Observatory, shows that SN 2004dc is of type
Ic, probably several weeks past maximum brightness.


THE EDGAR WILSON AWARD
     The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory announces that the
2004 Edgar Wilson Award for the discovery of comets (cf. IAUC 6936,
7926, 8162) is being divided among the following two individuals:
Vello Tabur, Wanniassa, A.C.T., for C/2003 T3; and William A.
Bradfield, Yankalilla, S. Australia, for C/2004 F4.


V1186 SCORPII
