image Discovered by Ella Sanders, R. Kot and D. Coffin (USA).   This one a Type Ia.   It's about 3" further north and 3" further east than Type IIP 2011bi.   Ella's search is very unique.   She only goes after galaxies that have had a recent discovery.   Lately she has had a great deal of success, more than the statistics would say she would.   We have a Photometry reference image made by Odd Trondal.   This supernova is in the Constellation Hercules.
