LaCluyze, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, on behalf of the CHASE project, report the discovery of an apparent supernova (mag approximately 16.8) on unfiltered images taken on July 12.08 and 12.98 UT with the 0.41-m 'PROMPT 1' telescope located at Cerro Tololo. The new object is located at R.A. = 13h23m06s.30 +/- 0".1, Decl. = -13°00'18".1 +/- 0".1 (equinox 2000.0), which is about 3".4 east and 4".0 south of center of the presumed host galaxy. Nothing is visible at this position on archival images taken on June 12.07 (limiting mag 18.0) and May 1.13 (limiting mag 18.5). .
