Heads up: Supernova at mag 13.4 in NGC 2525

Recommended Posts

Just spotted this on the Latest Supernovae page. Has anyone spotted it yet? Should be at a maximum elevation of 26 degrees as seen from my house at 00:25. Should be doable, if only the clouds clear

Sudenly I feel a bit insignificant. May be a cure for narcissism??

Good capture Guy. First SGL capture? Thanks for posting.

Mag 14.6. Thats getting faint. Us visual chaps may have missed the boat on this one. The moon is coming into play.

Thanks Paul.

I've posted in the past, but our observatory only deals with minor body astrometry and transient photometry. They don't usually look aesthetically pleasing...

We'll follow this one until it is too faint to continue observations. So about mag +20. In a similar fashion as 2017eaw.
