Supernova 2024ggi

Folks,

Just a quick shot from last night, much thanks to @mental4astro for the heads-up!

There are a triangle of "bright" stars towards the southern end of the galaxy extension, the red/orange one (TYC 7206-0545-1, mag 10.7) at the tip, SAO 202300 below and to the right slightly (mag 10.3), and the fainter mag 12.7 star above and to the right a bit further. The supernova is nestled in there closer to the top two. Quite obvious in relatively short exposures (less than a minute) from the suburbs.

Cheers,
Dunk

Thatís really cool Dunk. Iím currently collecting data on ngc3621 and have a few hours on Wednesday night / Thursday morning that doesnít show the SN yet. Do you know when it is supposed to have first been detected?

Nice pick up Dunk!

The colour of the SN is quite a strong blue.

Seestar image

I took a 10 min image of 3621 tonight with a Seestar.
The SN is next to the two bright stars on the right side of the galaxy.
I estimate it to be mag 12, it is next to a mag 12.4 star.

Found out about this while I was out of the country and managed a capture on Friday. 52x60s minutes on a 72ED in Bortle 7.


This is my 2nd SN (first was 2023rve) and 2024ggi is much easier to positively ID!


Look forward to future captures and watch the SN fade over time
