It is more than just seeing "something" you also need to prove it.
A group reported they found a supernova in M31, it turned out be a brighter asteriod. For a supernova we need to get a specturm of the suspect to confirm what it is. As well we take multiple images to prove the "star" hasn't moved or is a camera defect.
