SUPERNOVA 2003lr IN UGC 2904
Further to IAUC 8262, H. Pugh and R. J. Foley report the LOSS
discovery of an apparent supernova on unfiltered KAIT images taken
on 2003 Dec. 28.2 UT (mag 18.3) and 2004 Jan. 10.2 (mag 17.8). The
new object is located at R.A. = 3h56m59s.00, Decl. = +16o29'37".5,
which is 15".9 east and 33".3 north of the center of UGC 2904.
Nothing was visible at this location on an image taken on 2003 Dec.
22.3 (limiting mag 19.5).

No actually it was Three different asteroids :)
