[vsnet-alert 7045] Re: SN 2001ig in NGC 7424

Dear SN watchers,

I wrote in [vsnet-campaign-sn 295]:

And also in [vsnet-campaign-sn 303]:

IAUC 7793 informed that the spectrum of this SN IIb is now (Jan. 13.0)
making a transition from type II to type Ib/c-like one.  The expansion
velocity is quite larger and the luminosity seems brighter (if it is
further than 10Mpc) than the typical SN IIb 1993J on the similar phase.  

Sincerely Yours,
