Re:SN 1968A
Four F606W exposures of 3C 84 (NGC 1275) are available. Using the
nuclear offset, 7" east and 24" south, from the online Asiago catalog,
the site of the SN I 1968A is near the outer edge of the galaxy and the
WFPC2 chip. Only diffuse emission is seen near the SN site, and only two
stellar-like objects are seen within the 10" radius error circle. These
two objects have magnitudes m_F606W_ = 20.2 and 23.3 mag; for a distance
of 70.2 Mpc (from cz = 5264 km s^-1^ and H_0_ = 75 km s^-1^ Mpc), these
objects of M_V_ ~ -11.0 and -14.0 mag are almost certainly compact
clusters, more likely globular clusters. We do not have any color
information, but from the lack of detected recent star formation at the
SN site, it is most likely that this SN was a Type Ia, rather than
Type Ib/c.
