The image above comes from the average of three, 300-second exposures, unfiltered and unguided, remotely taken with the C14+Paramount ME+ST8-XME robotic unit available as part of the Virtual Telescope Project facility in Manciano, Italy. The supernova is indicated by an arrow in the upper left insert.

We estimated SN 2024inv as bright as mag. 12.1 (unfiltered, R-mags for the reference stars from the Gaia DR2 star catalogue, likely still at its peak. It is a young type Ia supernova discovered on 10 May 2024.

NGC 3524 is a lenticular galaxy, which distance is estimated in 95 million light years.

We will track this transient as long as possible.
