SN 2022hrs in NGC 4647

This Supernova was discovered onĀ 2022-04-16 19:15:28 by Koichi Itagaki. It was mag 15 in the discovery image.

I am estimating it at mag 12.4 based on the brightness of the stars in this image. I was able to spot the nova visually in the 18″ dob with ease, together with both galaxies.


Revisited the nova on may 08 – the nova is now clearly dimming.
