    Supernova PSN J02331624+1915252 in anonymous galaxy: 21 Aug. 2015

    The supernova PSN J02331624+1915252 in  anonymous galaxy was imaged as part of the Virtual Telescope’s supernova follow-up program.

    The image above comes from the average of five, 120-seconds exposures, unfiltered, remotely collected with the PlaneWave 17″+Paramount ME+SBIG STL-6303E robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project. The supernova was estimated at mag. 16.5 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). Spectroscopy showed this transient is a type-IIn supernova.
