Supernova SN2014bc in M106 galaxy

Today no bells and whistles, but hardly identified supernova in quite popular galaxy M106. The galaxy itself has been pictured by me some time ago ( In galaxy far far away ) and the SN2014bc supernova is quite hard object to detect. Not because it is faint, but it lies very close to the galaxy core – a little bit over 3″ (this angular separation is about the same like the apparent size of 1 cent coin visible from 1km distance). The supernova is of type II and the quite good yesterday’s seeing allowed me to partially separate it from M106 core:
