Stuart has updated BOSS info here if you are interested.

One of the pics of my observatory there shows just how small it really is...that's why I call it a 'micro-observatory'.

goodnight all, storm coming, must get some sleep!

Light curve of a type IIP supernova

Here is the light curve of a typical type II-P supernova, from the paper by Kasen and Woosley (as cited in a previous post)

It is most remarkable how the visual (V-band), red (R-band), and near-infrared (I-band) light of a typical Type II-P Supernova stays constant for a long time. In contrast, the Blue (B-band) light falls off steadily, and the very-near-ultraviolet (U-band) light falls off rapidly.

The strong pulse of U-band (very near ultraviolet) light at the very beginning of the supernova event also looks extremely interesting.

These "exploding critters" do some strange things!
