Michael's Supernova Page
Here's my current list of
all recent SNe (mostly post-1988).
I keep it up-to-date as new SNe are announced in IAU
Circulars, so it will be more recent than the date of this
HTML document you are reading now.
You may also check out the more detailed
list of recent SNe at the CBAT.
There's another good list at the
Padova-Asiago Supernova Group page.
1997 was a record year for SNe -- there were 163 reported, enough
to wrap around the alphabet more than six times!
You can see that the number of reported SNe has been increasing lately:
Perhaps you'd be interested in
distant supernovae only.
This is a list of supernovae discovered in systematic searches
for events at z > 0.2.
With two big groups going after the distant events,
Supernova Cosmology Project
High-Z Supernova Search Team (no WWW page, as far as I know),
the distant supernovae are now making up a significant fraction
of all those reported in 1997:
You may also read a short description of
supernovae in the Milky Way Galaxy
observed by humans in the past 2000 years.
You may also want to visit other sites with information about SNe:
The KAIT Gallery of supernova images
- Marcos Montes'
list of Supernova material on the WWW. Lots and lots of
references, including those listed below. A great place to start.
List of Supernova in NGC and IC galaxies, recent SNe which
might still be visible. Kept by David Bishop, email@example.com.
Padova-Asiago Supernova Group page
which includes a list of all SNe discovered back to 1885,
finding charts and sequences, and more.
- Home page of the
Supernovae Research Group at Sternberg Astronomical Institute
in Moscow, Russia. They keep
a much more detailed catalog of supernovae
than I do, with morphological types and magnitudes
of host galaxies, peak magnitudes of supernovae, and more.
International Supernovae Network, based in Italy. This
page contains notes and images on recent SN candidates, so it's
a good place to go if you want to help confirm new supernovae!
Mr. Galaxy's Supernova site describes the effort by a
group of amateur astronomers to discover supernovae.
Dave Bishop's Supernovae site,
sponsored by the Astronomy Section of the Rochester
Academy of Sciences.
The International Early Supernova Alert Page
contains information on a plan to monitor a number
of neutrino detectors in order to detect supernovae which occur
in our own Milky Way or Magellanic clouds.
- Tool for checking
for minor planets near suspected SN. Thanks to the
Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams for providing this service.
Site Aude des Supernovae.
Observations of bright supernovae by French amateur astronomers.
la página WEB del GRUPO DE BUSQUEDA DE SUPERNOVAS M1
The home page of the Spanish M1 group, who study novae, supernovae
and other variable objects.
Enrico Prosperi's Supernovae Page
which contains images and even animations of recent events.
The Nearby Galaxies Supernova Search
uses the Kitt Peak 0.9m telescope with a wide-field camera to search
for nearby (z < 0.1) supernovae near the celestial equator.
Supernovae, Supernova Remnants and Young-Earth Creationism,
by Dave Moore, addresses (mistaken) arguments that try to
use observations to SNe to argue for biblical creation.
The Knight Supernova Sample is a set of galaxies
which has been chosen for their high SN rate.
French SN site
has links to information on many individual SNe.
