Detection of an OH 1665-MHz Maser in M33.

We report one OH 1665-MHz detection in new observations with the NSF's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first OH maser detection in M33. The source occurs at a position of $\alpha=23.50069(9)^{\circ}$ and $\delta = 30.67984(9)^{\circ}$ (J2000) and is unresolved at the beam size ($9."7$). Two H$\alpha$ sources from the Moody et al. (2017) catalogue --- C1-1 and C1-2 --- are consistent within the beam size. We find a peak flux density of 24.1 mJy in a 1.5 km s$^{-1}$ channel. At the distance of M33, the source's specific luminosity is consistent with the brightest Galactic OH 1665-MHz masers.
