[vsnet-campaign-sn 539] SNe 2003I and 2003H

Dear SN watchers,

  IAUC 8049 informed some characters of recent SNe:

SN 2003I:
In [vsnet-campaign-sn 533] (Jan. 11):
>SN2003I  20010326.0 <205:C Puc
>SN2003I  20030109.31 176C  Puc
># A host galaxy of SN 2003I (9:27:29.48, +3:55:45.6 (J2000.0), offset
># = 10"E, 1"S) is a small, apparently spiral (S?) galaxy IC 2481.
># The expected maximum for typical SN Ia is mag about 16.0.

The CfA team has revealed that it is type Ib SN about one week after

SN 2003H:
In [vsnet-campaign-sn 536] (Jan. 14):
>  IAUC 8047 informed that spectra taken with Baade-6.5m telescope on
>Jan. 9 and 10 UT reveal that it is type IIb SN.  It resembles SN Ib
>1984L before maximum light, but much more red probably due to its
>intrinsic color. 

  This red color was indeed due to a significant reddening within the
host galaxy.  

Sincerely Yours,
