Discovered by K. Itagaki, Yamagata, Japan, on an unfiltered CCD frame using 0.50-m f/6.0 reflector at Yamagata under the limiting magnitude= 19.5, who writes nothing is visible at this location on his past frames including the most recent frame (limiting mag.= 18.5) taken on 2014 March 3.469 UT using 0.50-m f/6.8 reflector at Takanezawa and verifying was done on a frame (limiting mag. reaches to 19.5) taken on 2011 Nov. 1.789 UT using 0.60-m f/5.7 reflector + unfiltered CCD at Yamagata. His discovery image was put at http://k-itagaki.chicappa.jp/images/U3252.jpg. After the object was posted on the TOCP webpage, T. Noguchi, Chiba-ken, has confirmed this PSN on eight stacked 30-s frames under the limiting mag.= 18.5 with 0.23-m f/6.3 Schmidt Cassegrain + unfiltered CCD as mag.= 17.5, position end figures 44s.00, 29".5, who put his image at http://park8.wakwak.com/~ngc/images/PSNinU3252.jpg.

2014 03 24.960

This transient was observed on 2014 03 24.960 by Gianluca Masi, Francesca Nocentini and Patrick Schmeer, remotely using the 17"-f/6.8 corrected Dall-Kirkham 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. 16.9 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 43.91; 28.7 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.2" on both axes).

2014 03 25.1163

L. Elenin (Lyubertsy, Russia) and I. Molotov (Moscow, Russia) confirm an apparent supernova PSN J05114396+6729294 in UGC 3252. Object visible on 3x150sec images remotely taken at ISON-NM Observatory (Mayhill, NM, USA) with 0.4-m f/3 telescope + CCD (KAF09000) on Mar. 25.1163, 2014. Object located at 05h 11m 43s.81 +/- 0".09, +67d 29' 28".6 +/- 0".09 (UCAC-4) with magnitude 17.6R (mag. limit ~19.1m). Nothing is visible at this position on POSS and POSSII images.
