The position of new SN is: R.A. = 10h18m03s.68, +21o50'06".2 ># (2000.0), which is about 18" west and 10" north of the nucleus of ># the host galaxy. SN 2002cv is highly reddened, and the spectrum ># shows that it seems to be a core-collapse SN soon after burst. The infrared spectrum of SN 2002cv taken on May 22.3-23.3 at UKIRT shows it is of type Ia around B maximum. There is some resemblance with intrinsically brighter SN Ia 1991T, though SN 2002cv is reddened by A(V) about 6 mag.
