Discovered by B. Dintinjana (mag. 18.2) on four unfiltered images, taken by J. Skvarc on 2015 Aug. 5.829-5.868 UT with 60-cm, f/3.3 Cichocki telescope at Crni Vrh Observatory the course of the Comet and Asteroid Search Program (PIKA). The object is 1" E and 6" N from the center of the apparent host galaxy, catalogued as SDSS J163032.17+091346.5. Nothing is visible at this position on several Digitized Sky Survey red and blue images from the Palomar Sky Survey.

Vales on 2015 Aug. 6.823-6.828 UT with the 60-cm telescope and object at the same magnitude. H. Mikuz, Crni Vrh Observatory

2015 08 14.80477

This transient was observed on 2015 08 14.80477 by G. Masi, 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. 17.9 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 32.21; 52.6 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.1" on both axes).
