Supernova SN 2014J in M82: 04 Feb. 2014

The Virtual Telescope visited Messier 82 and its supernova SN 2014J again on 04 Feb. 2014, under a less than ideal weather conditions. The object was clearly detected.

Above is an image, remotely taken with the PlaneWave 17″ robotic unit: the supernova was found at mag. 10.4, significantly brighter than 27 Jan., the date of the previous observations from Virtual Telescope. Likely, the supernova is now peaking, obscured by the dust present in the irregular, sturburst hosting galaxy.
