The position of SN 2002ce is reported as R.A. = 8h33m22s.1, Decl. = +29d32'01" (2000.0). From this coordinates, the offsets are calculated as about 12" west and 18" south of the 2MASS position of the center of NGC 2604, a somewhat nearby spiral (SB(rs)cd) galaxy with a complicated central resion. This SN is spectroscpically classified by the CfA team as of normal type II, in the early phase. SN was not present on Arbour's image taken on Apr. 5.2. In average, normal SN II is about 2 mag dimmer than the typical SNeIa, so the expected maximum of this SN is mag about 15.9, neglicting the extinction in the host galaxy.
