Possible supernova

Very bright blue object associated with galaxy (or possibly just a chance alignment with a very blue star).

Hi,

I just added a feature where if you click on the map, in the popup the RA,Dec of the source is a link, and if you follow that link it will take you to cutouts of each individual image overlapping – eg,
http://legacysurvey.org/viewer/cutouts/?ra=132.4800&dec=2.8730&layer=decals-dr5

and there, you can see that we have r-band images from 2014 and 2016, and the source appears equally bright in both – so unfortunately, not a supernova.

cheers,

Thanks for that - I’ll keep hunting!
