It is currently too faint for most amateurs at mag 18 (right at my limit) but according to the spectrum it is a type Ia, possibly caught a remarkable 2 weeks before maximum so based on the distance to NGC3254 and that from the spectrum there does not seem to be much redenning, it could reach ~mag 13.
