Well I don't know why it didn't mention that this could have been viewable at the end of August.
The linked piece just states the 3rd through the 10th would have loved to had a chance to observe it from the begining
to see the difference.
It just amazes me that this happed 21,000,000 years ago and we are now just seeing the effects.
Last night I went out to view, but sadly it was clouding over more like a haze normally theres a gazillion stars couldn't find the dipper I did
manage to see something crazy
though while looking to the sky around 9:00 pm eastern I saw what seemed to be a bright star close to another star I focused on it ..it was moving
quite fast it seemed about as large as a normal star as high in the sky as a star, as I
watched it just vanished as if it tuned off It was very interesting. I love watching the sky it fasinates me.
I gaze up at night and have spotted many satellites moving across the black sky so they do move.
I would be interested if anyone did get to see the supernova ....would love to know as I will keep trying for the next week.
