Special Notice #67: Special Notice #66 on V455 AND Corrected

September 12, 2007: Due to a typographical error, the lead sentence of AAVSO Special Notice #66 was garbled. My sincere apologies! Here is the correct version:

According to IAU Circular No. 8868 (Daniel E. W. Green, editor), N. N. Samus, Institute of Astronomy, Moscow, reports that the dwarf nova cataclysmic variable 2328+38 HS 2331+3905 has been assigned the official name V455 And. The AAVSO validation file has been changed to reflect this new name. Please use V455 AND when reporting observations.

Special Notice #393: Correction to Special Notice #392 [ASASSN-14lp]

December 11, 2014: In AAVSO Special Notice #392, the name of the supernova discovered in NGC 4666 was given as ASASSN-141p. It should have been ASASSN-14lp. That is to say, the text following the dash should
be "fourteen ell pee" and not "fourteen one pee".

Please create charts and submit observations using the name ASASSN-14lp.

Sincere apologies for the error!
