2000IAUC.7415A...1P Circular No. 7415 Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMICAL UNION VARIABLE STAR IN FIELD OF NGC 3432 M. Papenkova and W. D. Li, University of California at Berkeley, on behalf of the Lick Observatory Supernova Search (cf. IAUC 6627, 7126), report the discovery with the 0.8-m Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT) of a variable star (thought not to be a supernova) in the field of NGC 3432. The new object was discovered and confirmed on unfiltered images taken on May 3.2 (mag about 17.4) and 4.2 UT (mag about 18.2), respectively. The new object is located at R.A. = 10h52m41s.40, Decl. = +36o40'08".5 (equinox 2000.0), which is about 123" east and 180" north of the diffuse nucleus of NGC 3432 and superimposed on an H II region (or spiral arm) of the galaxy. An unfiltered image of the field on Apr. 29.2 (limiting mag about 19.0) showed nothing at the position of the new object. 2000 May 5 (7415) Daniel W. E. Green
