2001IAUC.7702A...1H Circular No. 7702 Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMICAL UNION SUPERNOVA 2001eb IN NGC 1589 G. M. Hurst, Basingstoke, England, reports the discovery by T. Boles (Coddenham, Suffolk, England) of an apparent supernova (mag 16.3) on a single unfiltered CCD image taken (limiting mag about 18.0) on Aug. 29.132 UT in the course of the U.K. Nova/Supernova Patrol with a 0.36-m Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. SN 2001eb is located at R.A. = 4h30m45s.10, Decl. = +0 52'17".9 (equinox 2000.0), which is 7" west and 28" north of the center of NGC 1589. The new object is embedded in the spiral arms and therefore appears slightly diffuse. In response to an appeal from 'The Astronomer' group, D. Balam, (Victoria, BC, Canada) imaged the suspect on Aug. 30.509 with the 1.82-m Plaskett telescope, reporting that the brightness appeared similar to that found by Boles. Boles adds that the object is missing from his master image of 1999 Feb. 17 (limiting mag 17.5) and from second Palomar Sky Survey images taken in 1990 (red, limiting mag 19.5) and 1991 (blue, limiting mag 19.5). Hurst also notes that SN 2001eb is not present on an image of this galaxy shown in J. C. Vickers' Deep Space CCD Atlas: North (1993, p. 43; limiting mag about 18). 2001 September 1 (7702) Daniel W.
