SUPERNOVAE 2005cc, 2005cd, 2005ce, 2005cf
     Four discoveries of supernovae have been reported from
unfiltered CCD frames:  2005cc by T. Puckett and A. Langoussis (cf.
IAUC 8520; 0.35-m automated supernova patrol telescope); 2005cd by
Y.-T. Chen and C.-P. Hu, Graduate Institute of Astronomy, National
Central University, Jung-Li, report discovery (cf. IAUC 8471); and
2005ce and 2005cf by H. Pugh and W. Li (LOSS/KAIT; cf. IAUC 8527).

Additional approximate magnitudes from the respective discoverers:
SN 2005cc in NGC 5383, 2003 May 12 UT, [19.5-20.0 (Puckett); 2005
May 20.12, 17.7 (B. Harris, Oviedo, FL, 0.40-m reflector).  SN
2005cd in IC 651, Apr. 4.609, [18.6; May 18.477, 17.9.  SN 2005ce
in IC 5233, 2004 Dec. 19.14 UT, [19.5; 2005 May 30.46, 18.6.  SN
2005cf in MCG -01-39-3, May 25.37, [18.5; May 30.35, 15.5.
     V. Stanishev and A. Goobar, Physics Department, Stockholm
University, report that a spectrum (range 350-900 nm) of SN 2005ce,
obtained on May 29.2 UT by T. Augusteijn with the Nordic Optical
Telescope (+ ALFOSC), shows it to be most likely a type-Ib/c
supernova a few days after maximum.  The spectrum is blue and,
after correcting for the host-galaxy recession velocity (7375 km/s
as given by Haynes and Giovanelli 1984, A.J. 89, 758; via NED), is
similar to the de-reddened and de-redshifted spectrum of SN 1999ex
at 5 days after maximum (Hamuy et al. 2000, A.J. 124, 417).  The
absorption features at 415 and 630 nm are stronger than in SN
1999ex, and two weak absorptions at 470 and 585 nm, which are not
seen in SN 1999ex, are also present.
     M. Modjaz, R. Kirshner, and P. Challis, Harvard-Smithsonian
Center for Astrophysics, report that a spectrum (range 350-740 nm)
of SN 2005cf, obtained on May 31.22 UT by P. Berlind with the F. L.
Whipple Observatory 1.5-m telescope (+ FAST), shows it to be a
type-Ia supernova, around ten (or more) days before maximum light.
The supernova expansion velocity, derived from the minimum of Si
II (rest 635.5 nm), and adopting the NED recession velocity of
1937 km/s for the host galaxy (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991, Third
Ref. Cat. of Bright Galaxies, ver. 3.9), is about 15000 km/s.
