Koichi Nishiyama, Kurume,Japan and Fujio Kabashima, Miyaki,Japan report the discovery of a possible nova? .(mag.= 17.6) in M31 on seven 60-s unfiltered CCD frames taken around 2015 Oct. 02.75300 UT, ( limiting magnitude = 19.5 ) using a 0.50-m f/6.8 reflector(+FLI 1001E camera). as follows Nothing is visible at this location on our past frames taken on 2015 Sep. 22.775 UT (limiting magnitude = 18.9) and Sep. 27.557 UT (limiting magnitude = 18.4). We have checked in Minor Planets. Nothing is visible at the position of possible nova on the Digitized Sky Survey(POSS2/UKSTU) from 1986 Nov. 27 (limiting red mag 18.7) and 1993 Oct. 21(limiting infrared mag 17.8). the nearest star in M31 catalogue (http://www.lowell.edu/users/massey/lgsurvey.html) has position end figures 59s53, 16’58."3, distance 4."66, magnitudes V=22.2, B=22.9, R=21.5
