Today I observed in my observatory SN 2018kp.

SN 2018kp measured 16.16 +/- 0.05 with V as reference on stack of five images taken with a clear filter with T5 of on 2018 February 5.400.

For some reason the link did not work correctly. Attached is the image.

SN 2018kp measured 17.1CV on 2018 January 29.435 which is nearly 3 magnitudes brighter than discovery. This further suggests the object is probably a young supernova that was discovered before maximum. Image:

Given the redshift of the host galaxy, we find that this supernova had Mv~-13.3 when detected on 2018-01-24.
The transient was undoubtedly fainter than this on 2018-01-14. Thus, the SN is very unlikely to be a normal type-Ia at
8 days post-maximum on the 2018-01-27 (as noted by Neill et al. (2018)). Such a scenario would require the SN to suffer
from ~6 magnitudes of internal extinction through the arm of face-on spiral. The classification spectrum does not
appear consistent with such a high degree of reddening. Rather, we suggest that this is in fact much younger SN
than suggested by Neill et al. (2018).
