Our Hunt for New Supernova – 12th August 2010

Sometimes it is diffacult to determine if there is something there or not.

If you look at the image on the right of the picture, you can see that there is a very small change picked up in and shown as a very small dot of white inside the cross hairs.

We decided this was not likely to be a supernova as it was too small and undefined and could easily just be a variable star. Four others agreed with us and have given this object a poor rating.
