This page is devoted to information on Supernova 2006jc in UGC 4904.   Basic information on this SN, including the last reported brightness, on this Supernova can be found on the main page.  Information on the original web pages for many of these images can be found on the updates and links web pages.

sn06jc_i.jpg Discovery is shared by Koichi Itagaki (Japan) and Tim Puckett and R. Gorelli (USA).   At first this was lised as a possible supernovae, as Mr. Itagaki had posted a suspect image at almost exactly this location in 2004 (image indexed on this page).   Spectra for this object originally reported it as a type Ib, but further reduction shows it to be a young type Ia, then back to a Ib, and now a type Ic.   We have a DSS Photometry reference image made by Odd Trondal.  Icon generated from the Mr. Itagaki's discovery image.   This supernova is in the Constellation Lynx located near NGC 2798.
