Supernova SN 2013am in Messier 65: updates (13 May 2013)
After two weeks from its last sight, the Virtual Telescope spied again supernova SN 2013am, recently discovered in the bright galaxy Messier 65. The sky was very dark, so the vision was particularly good. Images were captured, as usual, remotely using the 17″ robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project.
The supernova is still shining as bright as it was last 28 April.
