SN2003ap 20030112.0 <195C PAL SN2003ap 20030209.31 167C PAL SN2003ap 20030209.33 167C PAL SN2003ap 20030209.35 167C PAL # SN 2003ap (9:50:52.83, -21:51:10.1 (J2000.0), offset = 1"W, 1"N) is # hosted by 2MASXi J0950528-215109, a very small galaxy. It lies # about 6'.6 from ESO 566-G18, which produced SN II 2001af (discovery # mag about 16.8). The CTIO spectrum of SN 2003ap taken on Feb. 11.20 # UT revealed that it is type Ia SN near maximum, superimposed on an # active-galaxy spectrum. The recession velocity of the host galaxy # is coincident with that of ESO 566-G18, so the reported magnitude is # consistent to the expected maximum for typical SN Ia, on the other # hand SN 2001af seems to had been quite luminous as a SN II.
