Supernova SN 2024exw in the NGC 4192A galaxy: 6 June 2024.

The image above comes from the average of two, 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.

We estimated SN 2024exw as bright as mag. 14.8 (unfiltered, R-mags for the reference stars from the Gaia DR2 star catalogue). It was discovered on 24 Mar. 2024 and it is a type II supernova.

The impressive galaxy in the field of view is Messier 98 (NGC 4192) at about 45 million light years from the Earth, while the supernova host galaxy is likely 3 times more distant.
