(Itagaki-san's discovery) is a young type II SN.

-- SUPERNOVA 2004A in NGC 6207 H. Kawakita and K. Kinugasa, Gunma Astronomical Observatory (GAO), K. Ayani, Bisei Astronomical Observatory (BAO), and H. Yamaoka, Kyushu University, report: "Optical spectra of SN 2004A (IAUC 8265), obtained with the GAO 0.65-m telescope (with GCS) on Jan. 11.8 UT and with the BAO 1.01-m telescope on Jan. 11.9 UT, show a blue continuum and the hydrogen Balmer lines with P-Cyg profiles. The emission components are somewhat weak. These features suggest that it is a young type II supernova. The expansion velocity, measured from the absorption minuma of the Balmer lines, is about 12000 km/s.
