Bright supernova in M82

Hi everyone. There is a bright supernova in M82. SN 2014J was discovered at Mill Hill. Here's my image from last night. It is still brightening.

Nick.

Isn't there just one subject for each thread?

The SN has continued to brighten but it is slowing down and is probably near maximum now at V=10.75.
