Dear SN watchers,

># The host galaxy of SN 2002er is UGC 10743 (offset is 12"W,5"N), a

  According to IAUC 7961, a spectroscopy of SN 2002er at the INT on La
Palma revealed that it is of type Ia, about 10 days before maximum on
Aug. 26.93.  The host-galaxy extinction also exist as well as the
Milky Way one, so the expected maximum for typical SN Ia is mag about
15.3.
