Hi from me :slight_smile:
Yes, it is a supernova candidate, but has already been recorded.
It is AT 2016csk

[Edit: actually, do they have only one observation? Is your observation with DECaLS legacy survey better?]

You can look for recorded supernova in
https://wis-tns.weizmann.ac.il/search
Make sure you change search parameters to 100 years.

In Galaxy Zoo, we have found some unrecorded transients, and reported them.

Supernova candidates hunt 2019- 2020

Hi ChristineM,

Yeah, I actually noticed from Simbad that it was recorded, a while after I had posted this. :frowning:

Thanks for the links, I’ll definitely bookmark them! That’s very cool, I’ve done some classifications for several projects at Zooniverse, so I might also join you in Galaxy Zoo. :slight_smile:
