SUPERNOVA 2005av IN NGC 6943
     Further to IAUC 8496, L. A. G. Monard reports his discovery of
an apparent supernova (mag about 15.4 +/- 0.1) on unfiltered CCD
images taken on Mar. 24.077 and 24.983 UT with a 0.30-m reflector
near Pretoria, South Africa.  The new object is located in a spiral
arm of NGC 6943 at R.A. = 20h44m37s.58, Decl. = -68o45'10".6
(equinox 2000.0), which is 22" east and 18" south of the nucleus of
the galaxy.  Nothing is visible at this location on Monard's image
taken on Mar. 5.133 (limiting mag 17.5) or on an image from the
Digitized Sky Survey (limiting red mag 20.5).  SN 1998ew also
occurred in this galaxy.


SUPERNOVA 2005aw IN IC 4837A
     Further to IAUC 8488, C. Jacques and E. Pimentel report their
discovery of an apparent supernova (mag 15.3 +/- 0.2) on unfiltered
CCD images taken on Mar. 24.27 and 25.25 UT with a 0.30-m Schmidt-
Cassegrain reflector at Belo Horizonte, Brazil.  The new object is
located at R.A. = 19h15m17s.44, Decl. = -54o08'24".9 (equinox
2000.0), which is 13" east and 30" south of the center of IC 4837A.
Nothing is visible at this location on a CCD image taken on Mar.
7.32 (limiting mag 17.9) or on a 1976 Palomar Sky Survey plate
(limiting red mag 20.0).


SUPERNOVA 2005ax IN NGC 1544
     Further to IAUC 8492, T. Puckett and D. George report the
discovery of an apparent supernova (mag 14.5) on an unfiltered CCD
frame taken with the 0.60-m automated supernova patrol telescope on
Mar. 26.12 UT.  The new object was confirmed on multiple combined
CCD frames taken by D. George (Ottawa, Canada) with a 0.35-m
reflector on Mar. 27.31 (at mag 14.5).  The new object is located
at R.A. = 5h02m38s.11, Decl. = +86o13'22".2 (equinox 2000.0), which
is 2" east and 2" north of the center of NGC 1544.  Nothing is
visible at this location on images taken by Puckett on 2002 Apr. 5
and 2003 Feb. 11 (limiting mag about 20.0).
