1994IAUC.6058....1W Circular No. 6058 Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMICAL UNION SUPERNOVA 1994Y IN NGC 5371 William Wren, McDonald Observatory, reports his visual discovery of an apparent supernova in NGC 5371 (R.A. = 13h55m.7, Decl. = +40o28', equinox 2000.0), located about 28" west and 14" north of the galaxy's nucleus. Wren provides the following magnitude estimates as seen through a 0.9-m telescope: July 31.18 UT, [16.5; Aug. 19.15, 15.0. Y. Paik, A. V. Filippenko, R. R. Treffers, and S. D. Van Dyk, University of California at Berkeley; and M. W. Richmond, Princeton University, report that R-band images of NGC 5371 were obtained in August as part of the Leuschner Observatory Supernova Search. On Aug. 12, SN 1994Y is 2.7 mag fainter than the comparison star 61" west and 5" south of it, barely below the threshold for automatic detection. On Aug. 16, it is perhaps 2 mag fainter than the com- parison star, but the image quality is very poor. Images obtained on Aug. 3, 6, and 9 show little or nothing due to clouds. SN 1994Y is measured as 34" west and 11" north of the galaxy's nucleus. 1994 August 19 (6058) Daniel W. E. Green
