# A host galaxy of SN 2003ab (9:19:13.26, +48:58:09.1 (J2000.0),
# offset = 9"E, 4"N) is UGC 4930, a distant spiral (Scd:) galaxy.
# There is a bright (mag about 12) foreground star about 40" ENE of
# the nucleus of UGC 4930.  The SN is located between this star and
# the nucleus.  The expected maximum for typical SN Ia is mag about
# 17.1.

# A host galaxy of SN 2003ac (12:21:47.35, +25:52:33.1 (J2000.0),
# offset = 23"E, 31"S) is IC 3203, an edge-on spiral (Sb) galaxy.  It
# is superimposed on the disk.  The expected maximum for typical SN Ia
# is mag about 16.6, but the reported magnitudes suggest that it may
# be of type II in its plateau phase. 

SN 2003aa:
In [vsnet-campaign-sn 551] (Feb. 2):
>SN2003aa  20030124.4 <185:C  KAI
>SN2003aa  20030131.4  176:C  KAI
>SN2003aa  20030201.4  176:C  KAI
># A host galaxy of SN 2003aa (10:46:36.82, +13:45:32.2 (J2000.0),
># offset = 26"E, 30"N) is a face-on barred-spiral (SB(rs)c;LINER Sy)
># galaxy NGC 3367.  This galaxy has also produced SN Ia 1986A (maximum
># mag 14.4) and SN II-p 1992C (discovered at mag 16.5 after maximum).

  The CfA team has revealed that it is type Ic supernova.  The
spectrum taken on Feb. 2.31 resembles that of SN Ic 1994I four days
before maximum.

Sincerely Yours,
