A few days ago, a Type Ia supernova was discovered in Messier 82 (NGC 3034, the Cigar Galaxy). Because of clouds, it took a few days for me to image it. Here’s my first shot of M82 and the supernova.
Comparing to other recent photos, it looks like it’s still getting brighter. It’s brightness is expected to increase over at least the next week. Get out and take a look!
