SUPERNOVA 1999X IN CGCG 180-22
M. Schwartz, Cottage Grove, OR, reports his discovery of an apparent supernova (mag 16.1) on an unfiltered CCD frame taken on
Jan. 23.23 UT utilizing the Tenagra I 0.35-m automated supernova patrol telescope in Sonoita, AZ, internet-controlled from Cottage
Grove. SN 1999X is located at R.A. = 8h54m32s.23, Decl. =+36o30'41".1 (equinox 2000.0), which is about 4".1 east and 5".5
north of the nucleus of CGCG 180-22. The new object was confirmed on a frame taken on Jan. 27.13 at mag 15.3, showing significant
brightening. Schwartz adds that the object does not appear on either the first or the second Palomar Sky Survey scans, and that
it is absent from the USNO A1.0 catalogue.
P. Garnavich, S. Jha, and R. Kirshner, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, report that a spectrum of SN 1999X was
obtained and reduced by P. Berlind (Fred L. Whipple Observatory) on Feb. 6.3 UT using the Tillinghast telescope. The spectrum shows a strong Si II absorption feature with a minimum at 629.6 nm,indicating that this is a type-Ia event. Other features suggest an
age between 7 and 10 days past maximum light. The recession velocity of CGCG 180-22 is 7500 km/s (Ramella et al. 1995, A.J.
109, 1458), so that the supernova photospheric expansion velocity derived from the Si II line is 10 050 km/s.
