Supernova in M95 (NEWS) - Deep Sky Videos

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
This is breaking news (on Earth). It happened millions of years ago in space. We have an as-yet unconfirmed supernova in the galaxy M95.

This is not our final M95 video, just a news update. Thanks to Nik Szymanek who imaged the object for us at short notice and in testing conditions (what a nuisance Mars can be).

Video features Professor Mike Merrifield and Meghan Gray.

Some additional image credits:
The first image saw came from

I made some quick calculations. If you look at Mars and put a finger close to your eye.
Imagine the difference in distance between you and Mars to a distance between your eye and your finger.
Mars is hundreds of billion times more distant then your finger.
Now roughly the same ratio will be between distance from you to Mars and distance between you and M95.
So you can imagine that your finger is Mars and M95 located where Mars is.

Hey universe! A star exploded!

...

What do you mean "it happens all the time?"

In all earnestness, pretty damn cool from this simple human's perspective.

@kardredren says, I think it was spoken like a true galaxy astronomer! But I assure you Dr Gray has plenty of time for planets too!!! ;)

@singlespies It could be 2-3 months I think I was told... but I'm no astronomer and that is my hazy memory!!!

@DFTBA10000 Another astronomer told me it could be something less bright in the foreground, coincidentally aligned with M95 behind... a nova for example.... we'll know soon though!

you can try with binoculars, if these binoculars are really very good. With the naked eye, you have no chance of seeing it.
