[vsnet-campaign-sn 499] old SN Ia 2002hl

Dear SN watchers,

In [vsnet-campaign-sn 494] (Nov. 5)
>SN2002hl  20020404.0   <185C  Bol
>SN2002hl  20021104.236  163C  Bol
>SN2002hl  20021105.083  165C  Bol
># NGC 3665, a host galaxy of SN 2002hl (11:24:40.12, +38:46:03.0
># (J2000.0), offset = 42"W, 17"N), is a nearly lenticular (SA(s)0^0^)
># galaxy, which likely produce only SN Ia, whose expected maximum is
># mag about 13.9.  If this is the case, it should be one (or mixed) of

  According to IAUC 8011, the ESO team and the UCB team has revealed
that it is type Ia SN about one or two months after the maximum light 
on Nov. 5-6.
