A comprehensive list of "Possible Supernova" (PSN) can be found at the IAU's CBAT Transient Object Confirmation Page (TOCP) which also includes "possible nova" (PNV) and other unclassified transients. Keep in mind that "possible" means just that....these objects have yet to be confirmed by followup observations when they are posted. Many of these will subsequently be confirmed. The particular PSN J03520610-3903551 posted by Blackprojects has not yet been confirmed as a real SN but might. You need to keep checking the CBAT's and ATel's to see if it's status has changed.

You can use the SAI catalog to check for SDSS SN. There are 702 SN cataloged for SDSS I and SDSS II.
