Apparent transient visible in the same position in two frames taken between 2013 February, 19.0222 and 19.0236 UT. Images taken with the 0,28 m. f/6.3 "Vittore Maioni" telescope of the Col Drusciè Obs. (Cortina d'Ampezzo - Italy) during the Italian Supernovae Search Project. For bad weather conditions and full Moon light, it's not so far possible to verify the doubt. It appear near of the spiral galaxy UGC7820, but apparently out of the external spiral arms. As soon as possible we will provide a confirmation image of the doubt. Does not rule out that it may be a supernova, it could also be an unknown asteroid or a galactic variable star still unknown.
