Comments

Xi Liao, Wei Gao, Yang Shen, Ang Li, Di Hu, Jiu Zhou, Mi Zhang, Peiyuan Sun and Xing Gao, report the discovery of a possible supernova (mag approximately 17.1) on one 40-s survey image (limiting mag about 19.0) taken by Xing Gao in Xingming Observation Sky Survey (C42) around Feb.12.92281 UT. Using an unfiltered CCD ( + Celestron C14 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope D=356-mm @f/6.9). The new object approximately located at R.A.=15h 36m 32s.47 Decl.=+16 36 36.7 (equinox 2000.0). Which is about 8.9" east and 8.7" north of the center of the NGC 5962.

Nothing is visible at this position on archival images taken on Feb.07,2016 (limiting mag 19.0), or on the DSS (POSS-II Red) from Jun.20,1992 (limiting mag about 19.5).
