Our Hunt for New Supernova – 13th August 2010

The images below have a very good chance of being a supernova.

You can see the object in the cross hairs of the left handed image but not in the middle. This means that in the last few hours that object was in that area of the sky but not seen prior to that.

In the right hand picture, the object is centered perfectly in the cross hairs and has a good shape.

17 people including us looked at these images and gave the object a good chance of being a supernova.
