sn06fp_i.jpg Discovered by Tim Puckett and R. Gagliano (USA).   This one is another odd ball.   If you take a spectrum, and you see Hydrogen, then you have a type II supernova.   Unfortunately that does not prove that you have found a real supernova.   This turns out to be a blue variable (in UGC 12182), and not a supernova.   We have a DSS Photometry reference image made by Odd Trondal.  Icon generated from the discovery image.   This supernova is in the Constellation Cepheus.
