Serious (black and white) astronomy – SN2014bv

Once I started to be interested in astronomy I believed deep sky tiny galaxies black and white pictures are ‘seriuos’ ones. I still believe this 🙂 Not so long time ago another supernova has been discovered – this time in NGC4386 galaxy – http://www.rochesterastronomy.org/sn2014/sn2014bv.html . Galaxy is placed in the constellation of Draco and is about 80 million light years away. Other few large galaxies are in the same distance, but there is also quite bright quasar Markarian 205 that is about one billion light years away.
Supernova is of type Ia and reached maximum brightness on June, 29th. Currently it is slowly fading.
