Discovered by K. Itagaki, Yamagata, Japan, on an unfiltered CCD frame using 0.50-m f/6.8 reflector remotely at Takanezawa, Tochigi-ken, which was confirmed on ten followed-up frames taken before and after the discovery. Nothing is visible at this location on the past frames including the most recent frame taken on 2014 Nov. 22.489 (limiting mag.= 18.5) and verifying was done on a frame (limiting mag.= 19.0) taken on 2006 August 30.654 UT using 0.60-m f/5.7 reflector at Yamagata. Also the discovery image was posted at http://k-itagaki.jp/images/309.jpg.

This transient was observed on 2014 12 17.88814 by G. Masi and P. Catalano, remotely using the 17"-f/6.8 robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project facility, at Bellatrix Astronomical Observatory in Ceccano, Italy. 120-seconds exposures, unfiltered, show the source at mag. 18.0 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 39.65; 03.6 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.2" on both axes).

This transient was observed at mag.+17,9 on 2014 12 20.1542 by A. Valvasori and F. Briganti, remotely using the iTelescope T21 Dall-Kirkham 431mm F/4.5, at Mayhill - New Mexico and 2x180seconds exposures, unfiltered, in the course of Italian Supernovae Search Project.

F. Watanabe (Nayoro Observatory, Nayoro, Japan) performed a follow-up observation for PSN J00563965-0954028 using a 0.50-m f/9.5 reflector and an unfiltered CCD camera (SBIG STL-1001E) on Dec. 18.52073 (UT). A combined image (30 sec x 36 frames) shows this transient was observed at the magnitude of 17.9 mag (R mags for the reference stars from the UCAC4 catalog), providing position end figures 39s.68; 02".5 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0".3 on both axes).
