L. Elenin (Lyubertsy, Russia) confirm an apparent supernova PSN J12355230+2755559. Object visible on 3x300sec images remotely taken at ISON-NM Observatory (Mayhill, NM, USA) with 0.45-m f/2.8 telescope + CCD (KAF09000) on Jan. 13.4794. Object located at 12h 35m 52s.28 +/- 0".1, +27d 55' 55".1 +/- 0".1 (NOMAD) and have magnitude about 16.4U (mag. limit ~19.2m). Possible supernova visible above relative faint SDSSCGB 754.2 galaxy.

Simone Leonini, Siena, Italy, report the pre-discovery by S. Leonini, G. Guerrini, P. Rosi and L.M. Tinjaca Ramirez of the supernova in NGC4559 (mag. about +16.5 – USNO B1 catalogue) on unfiltered CCD image (limiting mag. about +18.2) taken on 2012 January 11.25069 UT at the Montarrenti Observatory in the course of an automatic survey of the Italian Supernovae Search Project using a 0.53m f/8.7 Ritchey-Chretien telescope (+ Apogee Alta U47 CCD camera). The new object is located at R.A. 12h35m52.25s, Decl. +27degrees55arcmin55.9arcsec. (Astrometrica -equinox 2000.0). No stellar source is visible at the position of the apparent supernova in our past images including one on 2010 Apr. 29 (limiting mag. about +19.0) and it does not appear on Palomar Sky Survey infrared, red and blue plates (1997 Jun 01, F plate; 1950 Apr 10, J plate; 1990 Mar 23, N plate, limiting mag. +19.5). No known minor planets are marked in that position for the time of our observation.
