Supernova Success from Portugal

We've had more success on this year's favourite supernova so far, SN2016adj in Centaurus A.

High School Adolfo Portela in Portugal have been observing the supernova and performing photometry measurements in their Astronomy Club. 


Here is what the students had to say about their experiences: 

Photometry from France

College le Monteil in France have had great success both observing and analysing data they obtained from the Faulkes Telescopes. Students took their own images of the recent supernova in Centaurus A and used these along with images taken by other users to perform photometry.

From their results, they were able to plot a light curve in order to see how the supernova has faded over time.
