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. home page. With two big groups going after the distant events, the Supernova Cosmology Project and the 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.
