We report the discovery of a relatively faint (V = 15.5) early-type WN star in the SMC. The line strength and width of He ii λ4686 emission are similar to those of the other SMC WN stars, and the presence of N v λλ4603, 4619 emission (coupled with the lack of N iii) suggests that this star is of spectral type WN3-4.5, and thus is similar in type to the other SMC WR stars. Also like the other SMC WN stars, an early-type absorption spectrum is weakly present. The absolute magnitude is comparable… Expand
