Supernova 2022hrs - 30.4.2022 at 00.00 - 30.4.2022 at 01.00 Nakkila Observation number 106565

Visibility I / V

Luckily on May Day weekend, it was still so dark that I was able to photograph the supernova found two weeks earlier in the galaxy NGC 4647, located in the sky in the constellation Virgo next to Messier 60.

This is the first supernova I have described. It’s pretty amazing to see how a supernova is almost as bright as its entire emogala.
