Abstract

In this brief paper we present photometric observations and the V photometric light curve of the type-IIP SN 2012aw. We observed this source at Porziano Astronomical Amateur Observatory (Umbria, Italy) from 2012 March 16 to 2012 June 2 for a total of 26 nights. We hope that our work can provide useful data for further studies and research.
