Hi Paul,I mentioned it in my Sky Notes last wednesday, but I'm not aware of an ebulletin about it.A good place to look for all supernova news is the Rochester Astronomy page at:http://www.rochesterastronomy.org/supernova.htmlOn the SN 2013am page, recent observations indicate somewhat fainter - around mag 15...http://www.rochesterastronomy.org/sn2013/sn2013am.htmlHope this helps,Cheers, Callum
