The expected maximum for typical SN Ia is mag about 16.7, # but it seems not to be of this type in the early phase. SN2002dy 20011102.2 <195:C KAI SN2002dy 20020708.5 170:C KAI SN2002dy 20020709.5 170:C KAI # MCG -01-59-24, the host galaxy of SN 2002dy, is a distant spiral # (SABc) galaxy, which makes a pair with MCG -01-59-25 (1'.3 NE). The # CfA spectrum taken on July 10.47 UT revealed that it is of type II, # and the narrowness (FWHM = 3100 km/s) of the hydrogen emission # suggest that it would be of type IIn. The discovery magnitude is as # bright as the expected maximum for typical SN Ia, which is # consistent with bright SN IIn nature. Such bright SN IIn, which # somebody call as "type IIn hypernovae", are thought to be related # with the gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), but no GRB detection in this field # was reported in these three months.
