SUPERNOVAE 2005mh-2005mr
     CBET 339 contains the details for ten supernovae (designated
2005mh-2005mq) fainter than mag g = 20 reported by J. Frieman on
behalf of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey II collaboration; six of the
new SDSS supernovae are type-Ia events, one is a probable type-Ia
event (2005mh), one a type-II event (2005mk), one to be a probable
type-IIn event (2005mj), and one is a type-Ib supernova (2005mn).
CBET 340 contains details of a probable type-Ia supernova (mag
24-25), designated 2005mr and apparently in a galaxy with redshift
z = 0.68, found by G. R. Meurer and colleagues (the "Probing
Evolution And Reionization Spectroscopically" Science Team) in
spectroscopic data obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope's
Advanced Camera for Surveys Wide Field Camera.


SUPERNOVA 2005ms IN UGC 4614
     T. Puckett and A. Kroes report the discovery of an apparent
supernova (mag 17.9) on an unfiltered CCD frame taken with the
Puckett Observatory 0.50-m automated supernova patrol telescope in
Ellijay, GA, on Dec. 27.30 UT (and confirmed at mag 17.1 by J.
Newton, Portal, AZ, on frames taken on Dec. 29.40 with a 0.35-m
reflector).  The new object is located at R.A. = 8h49m14s.34, Decl.
= +36o07'47".9 (equinox 2000.0), which is 25".0 west and 35".9
north of the center of UGC 4614.  SN 2005ms is not present on
frames taken by Puckett on Dec. 11 (limiting mag 19.2)


SUPERNOVAE 2005ev, 2005ew, 2005mt-2005mx
     Below are details for seven supernovae discovered by the
"Nearby Supernova Factory" collaboration on NEAT images taken at
Palomar.  All are type-Ia supernovae except for 2005mt (type IIn),
2005mw (type II), and 2005mx (type II).  (Additional information
given on CBETs 244, 344.)
