Supernova SN 2013am in Messier 65: updates (28 Apr. 2013)
The Virtual Telescope visited for the 4th time supernova SN 2013am, recently discovered in the bright galaxy Messier 65. The Moon was very bright and the sky was hazy, but the star was well visible in all the raw images captured by the 17″ robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project.
Its brightness looks unchanged, but the Moon was strong, so new images will be taken as soon as the sky will be darker.
