SUPERNOVAE 2004gf, 2004gg, 2004gh, 2004gi
     Four new apparent supernovae have been reported from
unfiltered CCD images, 2004gf by T. Boles (cf. IAUC 8437), and the
rest by M. Moore, K. Shimasaki, and W. Li (LOSS/KAIT; cf. IAUC 8443).

COMET C/2004 RG_113 (LINEAR)
     M. Bezpalko, Lincoln Laboratory, reports the LINEAR discovery
of an apparent comet with a short tail in p.a. about 195 deg on Nov.
20.435 UT.  This object was identified by the Minor Planet Center
with the apparently asteroidal object 2004 RG_113 (also found by
LINEAR; cf. MPS 113143 -- Sept. 19 batch), with the discovery
observations given below.

     2004 UT             R.A. (2000) Decl.       Mag.
     Sept. 6.39770    5 30 15.54   +41 08 17.9   19.2
