Nothing there according to SDSS.

The green-blue signature (coming from adjacent exposures) is a sure sign of an asteroid.

This is clearly an asteroid. If the object has the typical combination of gree/blue and/or red color it is almost certain an asteroid.

If you want to learn more about transients (supernovae) and about how to distinguish a transient from a foreground star, asteroid or other things. I have an interesting link for you below.
