SUPERNOVAE 2006ba, 2006bb, 2006bc, 2006bd, 2006be, 2006bf
     Six new apparent supernovae have been reported from unfiltered
CCD images:  2006ba by L. A. G. Monard (cf. IAUC 8690); 2006bc by
R. Martin (cf. IAUC 8496); 2006be by N. J. Ponticello and W. Li
(LOSS/KAIT; cf. IAUC 8691); and the rest by T. Puckett (cf. IAUC
8691; with R. Gagliano for 2006bb and 2006bf, and with L. Cox for
2006bd).

COMET 73P/SCHWASSMANN-WACHMANN
     Further to CBET 439 and IAUC 8692, E. J. Christensen, Mt.
Lemmon Survey, has reported four further components of comet 73P
from observations with the 1.5-m reflector on Mar. 24.5 and 25.5 UT
(and in some cases from Mar. 23.5).  Component 'P', with magnitude
estimates in the range 19.8-21.7, has positions corresponding to T
= 2006 June 7.88 TT.  Component 'Q', of mag 20.7-21.3, has T = 2006
June 7.74.  Component 'R', of mag 20.5-20.8, has T = 2006 June 8.20.
Component 'S', of mag 20.9-21.5, has T only some 0.001 day earlier
than component 'K', which has now been redetected at mag 20.9-21.3.
The astrometric observations are provided on MPEC 2006-F33.
     Visual total-magnitude estimates for component 'C':  Mar.
19.96 UT, 10.7 (W. Hasubick, Buchloe, Germany, 0.44-m reflector);
23.80, 10.5 (Y. Nagai, Gunma, Japan, 45x141 binoculars).
