The Nearby Supernova Factory reports the discovery of 11 supernovae in images obtained Jun 30 through Jul 08 UTC using the QUEST-II camera on the Palomar Oschin 48-inch telescope, operated by the Palomar-QUEST Consortium. Spectra (range 320-1000 nm) obtained with the SuperNova Integral Field Spectrograph on the University of Hawaii 2.2-meter telescope were used to classify each. R-band discovery magnitudes and J2000.0 coordinates are derived from comparison with the USNO-B1.0 catalog. The following table summarizes the discovered supernovae (dates are UTC).

Type Ia SN phases are as follows: SNF20070630-009 is 3-4 weeks after maximum, SNF20070703-007 is about one week after maximum, and SNF20070705-007 is at max. The host galaxy of the Type Ibc SNF20070708-004 is known to be UGC 01963 at z = 0.017 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991 RC3). This SN is similar to SN 2000H about 1 month after maximum.
