B. Dintinjana and H. Mikuz report discovery of a possible supernova (mag 15.7) by H. Mikuz on four unfiltered CCD images (bandpass roughly equivalent to the R band) taken on 2011 Nov. 18.720-18.751 UT with the 60-cm f/3.3 Cichocki reflector in the course of the Comet and Asteroid Search Program (PIKA) at Crni Vrh Observatory. The new object is located at R.A. = 22h26m14s.54, Decl. = +34o12'59".1 (equinox 2000.0; uncertainty about 0".2), which is approximately 8" east and 1" north of the center of nearby galaxy. Image http://www.observatorij.org/vstars/PSN20111118/PSN20111118.jpg Nothing is visible at this location on archival PIKA images, obtained on 11 nights between 2005 Jun. 14 and 2010 Dec. 12. Also, nothing is visible at this position on several Digitized Sky Survey red and blue images from the Palomar Sky Survey.
