Results from Supernova Sighting

This page contains all transients discovered by volunteers in the citizen science project Supernova Sighting in partnership Zooniverse. Here you will find a link to the object's Transient Name Server page and a list of the first people to correctly classify the transient.

Type can be candidate (Cand) or a specific transient type such as type Ia supernova (Ia), Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), etc. Candidate means we just found it and we are waiting on more information to determine whcih type of supernova or transient it is. We usually get spectra for this, unless we see we have found the object too late. For our science goal, studying the expansion fo the Universe, we need to have the evolution of brightness with time (light curve) before and after peak brightness of the type Ia supernova. If we find the object too late, we don't even send it for spectroscopy and will be marked as Stale. Telescope time is very valuable and difficult to get! Keep in mind that we are exploring new areas of the sky almost every week! In other cases "Stale" means that we couldn't get the classification of the transient, it probably looks like a supernova (evolution of brightness in time = light curve) but we didn't get any spectra. Spectra is hard to get for all of our candidates due to weather, moon and telescope time.

Lets hunt down some of the biggest explosions in the Universe, with real images from SkyMapper!
