SUPERNOVAE 2005io, 2005ip, 2005iq
     Three apparent supernovae have been reported from unfiltered
CCD images:  2005io independently by E. Lee and W. Li (via
LOSS/KAIT; cf. IAUC 8625; the tabulated data below for 2005io are
from KAIT) and by T. Boles (Coddenham, England, 0.35-m reflector);
2005ip by Boles; and 2005iq by H. Khandrika and W. Li (LOSS/KAIT).

     A. V. Filippenko and R. J. Foley, University of California,
Berkeley, report that inspection of CCD spectra (range 330-920 nm),
obtained on Nov. 5 UT with the Keck I 10-m telescope (+ LRIS),
shows that SN 2005io is of type II, shortly after the explosion.
The broad hydrogen Balmer lines exhibit P-Cyg profiles, but in the
case of H_alpha the emission component greatly dominates over the
absorption component.  The continuum is very blue, and He I 587-nm
absorption is present.
     M. Modjaz, R. Kirshner, and P. Challis, Harvard-Smithsonian
Center for Astrophysics, report that a spectrogram (range 350-740
nm) of 2005ip, obtained by M. Calkins on Nov. 6.50 UT with the Mt.
Hopkins 1.5-m telescope (+ FAST), shows it to be a type-II
supernova, probably within a few weeks past explosion.  The
spectrum consists of a blue continuum (indicating a young age), the
P-Cyg line of H_alpha, and other absorption troughs.  Adopting a
recession velocity of 2440 km/s for the host galaxy (from Falco et
al. 1999, PASP 111, 438), the expansion velocity derived from the
minimum of the H_alpha line is 15400 km/s.  An absorption trough
observed at about 425.0 nm seems to be too blue to be identified
with H_beta.
