SN2003B 20030105.5 150: REv # SN 2003B (offset from NGC 1097 (large barred-spiral) = 90"W, 175"N, # offset from NGC 1097A (small elliptical) = 40" due ease) was # discovered visually by R. Evans. It was revealed to be a type II SN # a few weeks after explosion on Jan 6 UT. The precise position is # not reported, so the asrometry is needed. NGC 1097 had produced SNe # 1992bd and 1999eu. These two were also SNe II, and the latter is # peculiarly dim one.
