    Paul, congratulations! Do you get to name the SN? Great to hear from you. When are you planning to come down and enjoy the 70F we had yesterday - it is 60F

      Paul, congratulations!  Do you get to name the SN?

      Great to hear from you.  When are you planning to come down and enjoy the 70F we had yesterday - it is 60F this morning!  And BTW, New Year's Day was 65F -  I had a JB and cigar on my back porch in short sleeves and read an old S&T...

      This has been a very warm and cloudy January.  Tonight we should have clearing and colder and maybe a chance to see Comet Macholz again.

      Send some jpg's of the kids.

      SUPERNOVA 2005B IN UGC 11066
          D. Lane, Saint Mary's University, reports that he and P. Gray
      have discovered an apparent supernova (mag about 18.0) on
      unfiltered CCD images taken on Jan. 12.002-12.18 UT with a 0.28-m
      reflector at Stillwater Lake, NS; earlier images from 2004 Dec.
      17.02 also show the object near limiting mag about 18.5.  SN 2005B
      is located at R.A. = 17h54m48s.8, Decl. = +71o32'35" (equinox
      2000.0), which is approximately 18" west and 10" north of the
      center of UGC 11066.  Nothing was visible at this location on
      earlier images taken on 2004 Aug. 23 and Sept. 15 (limiting mag
      19.0).  An independent discovery of SN 2005A (at mag 17.5) has been
      reported by T. Boles (cf. IAUC 8446) on an unfiltered CCD image
      taken on Jan. 13.227.  Boles provides position end figures 48s.72,
      34".5, adding that nothing is visible at this position on his
      images from 2004 Oct. 2 and Sept. 4 (limiting mag 19.5), and it is
      not present on Digitized Sky Survey plates from 1993 (limiting red
      mag 21.0) and 1989 (limiting blue mag 20.5).
