sn00eo_i.gif This supernova was originally discovered on a deep scan by Nearby Galaxy Supernova Search (NGSS) at magnitude 19.2. They did a spectrum, showing this SN to be a supposedly a type II W-R star (1998S like). About 10 day later, LOTOSS re-discovered this SN (independantly) at an amazing Mag 15.3. Amazingly bright for such a distant SN. We have a DSS Photometry reference image made by Odd Trondal. Icon created from the NGSS discovery image.
