[vsnet-alert 1681] SN 1998aq



Dear All,

SN 1998aq has been remarkably brightening after 2 days from the
discovery.  It shined at 14.0 mag on Apr 15.9 UT, which is 0.9 mag
brighter than the discovery image (G. Hurst, Priv. Comm.). 

Dr. Ayani has obtained a spectram of SN 1998aq on Apr 15.6UT, which 
indicates that it is of type Ia.  This result has submitted to IAUC. 
It will be expected to reach 12.5 mag or so at its maximum. 

SN 1998aq is the nearest SN Ia after SN 1996X.  Continuous photometry
and spectroscopy (and observations in other bands) are doubtlessly 
urged. 

Best wishes, 
Hitoshi Yamaoka, Kyushu Univ., Japan
