Discovered today at mag 16 but at only ~11Mpc could potentially get much brighter in the coming days depending on type (A type Ia could reach ~mag 11 in the absence of extinction)
Well placed for northern hemisphere observers (It is almost exactly at the zenith at 23:00 for me)

Now classified as a type II. Not surprisingly for a star burst galaxy I guess
