SUPERNOVA 2014cg IN UGC 11512 = PSN J20043485+1244168
     F. Ciabattari, E. Mazzoni, and G. Petroni, Borgo a Mozzano, Italy, 
their discovery of an apparent supernova (mag 17.8) on unfiltered CCD images
(limiting magnitude 19.5) obtained on July 18.95 and 19.92 UT with a 0.5-m
Newtonian telescope (+ FLI 4710 Proline camera).  The new object is located 
R.A. = 20h04m34s.85, Decl. = +12d44'16".8 (equinox 2000.0; astrometry with
respect to UCAC-2 stars), which is 4" east and 7" south of the center of
galaxy UGC 11512.  Nothing is visible at this position on the digitized 
of the Palomar Sky Survey from 1992 July 27 (J plate; limiting mag 20.3) and
1992 Sept. 27 (F plate; limiting mag 20.3).  The variable was designated PSN
J20043485+1244168 when it was posted at the Central Bureau's TOCP webpage 
is here designated SN 2014cg based on the spectroscopic confirmation 
below.  Additional CCD magnitudes for 2014cg:  2014 July 4, [19.5 
et al.); 22.344, 18.3 (J. Brimacombe, Cairns, Australia; remotely using a
51-cm RCOS telescope + + luminance filter at the New Mexico Skies 
near Mayhill, NM, U.S.A.; position end figures 34s.83, 17".5; image posted

end figures 34s.84, 16".2).

     J. Zhang, Yunnan Observatories (YNAO); and X.-f. Wang, Tsinghua
University, report on an optical spectrogram (range 330-890 nm) of 2014cg 
was obtained on 2014 July 24.68 UT with the 2.4-m telescope (+ YFOSC) at the
LiJiang Gaomeigu Station of YNAO.  The spectrum shows that PSN
J20043485+1244168 = SN 2014cg is a type-Ia supernova a few days after 
light.  Cross-correlation with a library of supernova spectra using the
"Supernova Identification" code (SNID; Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666,
1024) shows that 2014cg matches with SN 2005cg at +7 days.  Adopting a
redshift of 0.0147 for the host galaxy, UGC 11512 (Huchra et al. 1999, Ap.J.
Suppl. 121, 287), they measure a velocity of the Si II 635.5-nm absorption
feature to be about 10300 km/s.  The continuum of the spectrum is very red,
suggesting that this supernova may suffer significant reddening from the
