Description

This is a photo of a supernova SN-2014J which exploded in the Cigar Galaxy also known as Messier 82 or M82. The supernova itself is visible on the photo as a large yellow disk in the middle of the right half of the galaxy. A bit below it is a yellow dot, which is a star in our own galaxy. The supernova is much larger and brighter, even though it was about 12 million light years away! This photo is a result of processing multiple images taken with a Canon EOS 600-D mounted on a telescope.
