EDIT:

The light is 21,000,000 years old....you cannot watch it real time unless you have a spaceship and a time machine...sorry to disappoint the people who thought it was actually exploding today



So for all of us that dont have a telescope i have just seen on my subscriptions list on youtube a guy called Thunderf00t is broadcasting LIVE footage of the supernova tonight.

Im in the UK...i think its about 2 hours away

Wed. 31st Aug 2011, 10 pm PST.



Link to broadcast

www.blogtv.com...

Im going to try and stay up to watch it but its 3:18am....so i may miss it


Anyways...thought id let you all know so you can be a tiny minority of people to actually watch a live supernova...well....as live as you can from 21,000,000 lightyears lol

Although he doesnt say, the supernova he speaks of is almost certainly this one...



He's clearly going for the Guinness Book of records attempt for "most boring video broadcast" award.


From last week...

Supernova erupts in nearby Pinwheel Galaxy, closest in 25 years
When doing a routine survey of the nearby Pinwheel Galaxy, located a relatively short 21 million lightyears away from our solar system, scientists managed to capture a star, dubbed PTF 11kly, going supernova.

So this can only be viewed through a telescope?

Yup


Although discovered at magnitude 17, the supernova appears to be becoming brighter. It is estimated that it could reach magnitude 10 in the next few days, which would bring it within the reach of small telescopes or large binoculars. M101 is a face-on spiral galaxy and currently well placed for observation from the UK.


Was picked up by a big one....is getting brighter, so we can observe it with a smaller telescope

Not once in a lifetime.
My first was SN_1987A

Well what an utter and complete waste of my time!!

How many people have telescopes laying around the living cell?

Hopes raised and dashed like a sandstorm of emotional poker.You know I think the title is misleading/decietfull

At this time I will never be returning within this trust breaking thread...

They cant be predicted....so for all we know this will be the only visible supernova for the next 100 years...who knows?? No one lol

Its something you will rarely see twice, unless you are an astronomer.

Depends on your definition of "visible". From the reading I've done so far, theres no way you're going to be able to see this one without a monster set of binoculars, or preferably a telescope.
And if you have that, then there are HUNDREDS of supernova discovered every year that you could look at.

I dont think people really understand how common they are.
SN 1987A will still be the best one for a while, I think.

So we're not actually going to be seeing a supernova, but rather the aftermath of a supernova; I didn't believe the post when I read it anyway, I just wanted to see what other's response was, though I must say, it IS quite exciting if you don't own a very big telescope. I'm hoping Betelgeuse goes supernova soon though =]

The OP was referring to it being broadcast live over the internet by someone with a telescope. Why don't you read instead of being nasty and rude


Cheers for the heads up OP, I will try and watch it, I have a telescope, but I too am in the UK and 5:00am is gonna be too light to see squat, so I will have to watch the broadcast.

BTW, seen a massive fireball tonight in the North sky, heading straight down like it was aiming for Scotland, it was travelling very fast, had no tail, just a bright ball of light. Pretty darn cool, gotta love it.
