Emmanuel Conseil report/s the discovery of a new astronomical transient.

IAU Designation: SN 2016ekg
Coordinates (J2000): RA = 22:00:03.600 (330.015) DEC = -30:11:07.00 (-30.185278)
Discovery date: 2016-07-27 06:35:41 (JD=2457596.7747801)

Potential host galaxy: PGC 67803
Host redshift: 0.0171

Remarks: Emmanuel Conseil, on behalf of the TAROT Collaboration, reports the discovery of an apparent supernova (mag about 17.0 +/- 0.1) on 2016-07-27T06:35:41 using public images of the 0.25m robotic telescope TAROT La Silla observatory, Chile. SN is located at about R.A. = 22h00m03.60s, Decl. = -30o11'07.0" (equinox J2000.0), which is 17" E and 3" S from the nucleus of PGC67803 (22h00m02.59s -30o11'04.0"). The supernova does not appear in an image taken 2016-06-14T10:42:59
