Supernova 2006tb, confirmed at the Virtual Telescope

Among the most spectacular cosmic objects, supernovae are highly considered at the Virtual Telescope, also because the fast response capability of the system.

We do several activities in this field: we contribute to supernova suspects confirmation, obtain photometry on them and sometimes we add spectroscopic confirmation.

Over the years, we have tracked a very large number of these objects and our data were published many times.

Below you will find details about some supernovae we observed at the Virtual Telescope.
