Title: Discovery of a new quasar: SDSS J022155.26-064916.6

Here, we report the discovery of a new quasar: SDSS J022155.26-064916.6. This object was discovered while reducing the spectra of a sample of stars being considered as spectrophotometric standards for the Dark Energy Survey. The flux- and wavelength-calibrated spectrum is presented with four spectral lines identified. From these lines, the redshift is determined to be z≈0.806. In addition, the rest-frame u-, g-, and r-band luminosity, determined using a k-correction obtained with synthetic photometry of a proxy quasi stellar object (QSO), are reported as 7.496×10 13 L , 2.049×10 13 L , and 1.896×10 13 L , respectively.
