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.

It's 21 million light years away.

It exploded 21 million years ago.

Time and distance is incredible.

Here you go:


It shouldn't be too hard to find. The Pinwheel Galaxy sits north of the last two stars in the Big Dipper's handle, forming a roughly equilateral triangle with them.

Well don't expect as much as was intended, he's buggered some plug or something that would connect his camera to the scope, so all we'll get is a cam of his telescope display...

unless he's really mcguyver!

Actually his telescope is probably connected to a laptop (not HDMI though).
