[vsnet-campaign-sn 514] SN Ic 2002ji

In [vsnet-campaign-sn 511] (Dec. 3):
>SN2002ji  20020410.0  <180:C  BAO
>SN2002ji  20021130.84  151:C  BAO
>SN2002ji  20021201.93  151:C  BAO
># NGC 3655, a host galaxy of SN 2002ji (11:22:53.15, +16:35:10.0
># (J2000.0), offset = 22"W, 14"S), is a nearby spiral (SA(s)c:)
># galaxy.  It is a probable member of a group LGG 237, which also

  According to IAUC 8026, the Baade telescope at Las Campanas spectrum
on Dec. 3.3 revealed that it is of SN Ic around 1 month after maximum.
