Supernova 2008fv

Title: SN 2008fv: the third type Ia supernova in NGC 3147
Authors: D. Yu. Tsvetkov, L. Elenin

Multiple outbursts of type Ia SNe in one galaxy present a unique opportunity to study the homogeneity of these objects. NGC 3147 is only the second known galaxy with three SNe Ia, another one is NGC 1316. We present CCD UBVRI photometry for SN Ia 2008fv and compare the light and colour curves of this object with those for SNe Ia discovered earlier in NGC 3147: 1972H and 1997bq. The photometric properties of SNe 1997bq and 2008fv are nearly identical, while SN 1972H exhibits faster declining light curve.
