This one is a BAO Supernova Survey discovery. There is some controversy as to the type of this SN, It was originally reported as a type Ic, like 1997X, but the consensus now is type Ib/c. This SN has already peaked (somewhere around August 20, 1999) and is now starting to dim. The 6th magnitued star 16 Picseium is only 3 arc minutes away from this galaxy, so watch out for glare.
