Supernova 2021rhu - 20.8.2021 at 23.37 - 20.8.2021 at 23.58 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 101641

Visibility I / V

SN 2021 Rhu Pegasus in the supernova galaxy NGC7814 (little sombrero) was filmed on the first night of the August 2021 extra work. Toni and Veikko described Kari as a measurement sensor. The supernova was discovered by the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) exploration program on Palomar’s Samuel Oschin 48-inch Schmidt telescope on July 1, 2021. The ZTF tracks all changes in the starry sky, supernovae, comets, asteroids, etc. Source ZTF https://www.ztf.caltech.ed The measurement was complicated by the halo in the center of the galaxy, which had to be dimmed considerably in order for the object to be visible. Supernova reference point RA = 00h03m15s.429, Decl. = + 16 ° 08'44 ".51 # 2021rhu"> #2021rhu . Supernova development source ALeRCE ALeRCE is a machine intelligence service based on the new LSST Vera Rubin Observatory and ATLAS and ZTF systems Source ALeRCE . The type of supernova is 1a, it is a white dwarf star that gets material from its partner and grows towards the border of Chandrasekhar (about 1.4 masses of the Sun) when it explodes as a supernova.
