Ha yea I never got daylight savings? Anyway farmers have their own farms, it's a bit patronising assuming that they can't work out when to get up for work to get the most sunlight hours lol!

Thank you for sharing this, as I live in Oregon and was going to try to spot the supernova with my telescope or high power binoculars, but this will probably be much more fun.

It is about 8:30 p.m., so we have an hour and a half to go. Seeing a supernova is almost a once in a lifetime event, and I am so excited to get to see it.

Then go out and look at it now.
Its been observable by amateurs for a whole week now.

Anyone watching this broadcast will NOT be seeing a new supernova pop up suddenly into view. What they will be seeing is an 11th magnitude dot of light that will not change brightness at all during the duration of the broadcast. It will be essentially the same tonight as last night, and as tomorrow night.

Lots of viewers are going to be saying "is that it?!!?!??" afterwards.

I was talking about Nibru too and didn't get booted. But a lot of other people did right after you. Lame

It is so much fun to watch Thunderf00t, he is now having some equipment problems, and is using some colorful language. However, he is still going to try to show us the supernova.

This is much more fun than driving out of the city, and setting up my own scope, as he is very entertaining.

Thanks for informing all of us. I will need to check whether being in Australia I have already missed it.

Thanks anyway.

You mean people dont agree theres a giant brown dwarf entering our solar system?? They are probably real astronomers lol

How do you predict a supernova to the hour? There wasn't a noticeable change in the visible luminescence of the star generated by the the supernova in the short amount (approx. 45 min.) of time it was observed.

They can predict it by the neutrinos
And much larger telescopes would have seen this prior to today.

That does not sound like fun. I have only been watching the video.

There are some pictures of the supernova here.
