V. Lipunov (SAI MSU) reports the discovery by S. Shurpakov of a possible supernova (mag. 17.5) on two unfiltered survey images (limiting mag 19.0) taken on Jan. 22.041 and 22.009 UT with the MASTER-Kislovodsk robotic telescope (0.40-m f/2.5 reflector + 4Kx4K CCD). The new object is located at R.A. = 16h54m18s.97, Decl. = +51o52'36".9 (equinox 2000.0). The OT unfiltered magnitude is 19.1m (limit 19.5m). The OT is seen in 2 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2010-06-09.89581 UT with magnitude limit in 'R' filter 19.7m. There are 3 galaxies around. The brightest one is PGC 59221 (B=15.4) with a long distorted spiral arm. The OT offset is 78.3" E and 28.5" N. Two other galaxies are closer to the OT. Spectral observations are required.
