List of Supernovae in NGC and IC galaxies - 1997.


This data comes from IAU Circulars and occasionally more data will be provided on IAU's Astronomical Headlines page.

This is a partial list of the SN discovered in 1997. For more informat, you can look at the following Supernova Catalogs:

  • IAU List of Supernovae since 1885
  • Asiago's Supernova catalog
  • M. Richmonds's lisf of SNe since 1989
  • AstroArts Supernovae in 1997

    What a year! 163 Supernova were discovered in 1997 (92 last year), 36 better 18th magnitued (26 last year), 29 in NGC or IC galaxies (24 last year).
    See Mike Richmond's Supernova page for more detail on Supernova statistics.
