Re:SN 2002fk
A10. SN 2002fk. SN 2002fk was discovered in the spiral galaxy [SA(s)bc]
NGC 1309 at V 15.0 on 2002 September 17.7 by Kushida (2002) and also by
Wang & Qiu (2002). The recession velocity for the host galaxy is 2135 km
s-^1^. The supernova type was established by an optical spectrum
obtained September 20 (JD 2,452,538) (Ayani & Yamaoka 2002). The epoch
was estimated to be before maximum light. The maximum-light date from
the VSnet data is JD 2,452,549 +- 4 at V ~13.2 +- 0.5. A relative
B-band light curve for SN 2002fk finds B_max_ = 2,452,548.8 +- 1 day.
We estimate for SN 2002fk that maximum V light occurred at JD 2,452,550
+- 3 days, at apparent V_mag_ = 13.2 +- 0.2. The decline parameter
{delta}m_15_ = 1.1 +- 0.2 mag.
