Xiao(NAOC)Han Lin(THU) tns_2018rv_2458161.1921_BAO-2.16m_Cassegrain.txtObjectTNTSThe spectrum taken on UT Feb. 11.69 indicates that this transient has blue spectrum and has balmer series lines of hydrogen with a velocity of about 3000km/s. The spectrum is consistent with a nova or CV.

Wiggins, Tooele, UT, USA, reports his discovery of a possible supernova (mag about 14.96) on an unfiltered CCD frame taken 2018 Feb 11 06:25:31 UT using a 0.35-m f/5.5 reflector near Erda, UT, USA. The new object is located at R.A. 10h15m039.90s, Decl. +73°26’04.83” (equinox 2000.0), about 338” NW of the center of NGC 3147. Wiggins notes that nothing was visible at this position on an image taken on Feb 08.

Magnitude 18.1 Feb 13 - see image

This appears to be an outburst of the cataclysmic variable CP Dra

We can confirm at ASO that there was no 14th magnitude object at that position on Feb. 09.36 UT

Object is coincident with a blue point source in PS1 imaging as well as being 0.31" from a known dwarf nova in Simbad so likely a galactic DN rather than a SN.
