For more than hundreds of years there has no supernova recorded in our neighborhood within (a few 1000) lightyears. till now still nothing will happen. I hope it will happen (very) soon. The crab nebulae M1 was the last supernova in our neighborhood ,and that was in the 14 or the fifteenth century or so ,and that is (far) too long ago. I am still waiting (impatient) for the next spectaculair supernova explosion. I am sure that it will happen within ten or 30 years. And the (possible) supernova in the (far) distant galaxy in the constellation Aries has of course not my interest ,because you can see nothing of it,only if you have a telescope that can see things at the 18th magnitude. Maybe you have such a telescope? I dont have it. Yes a supernova that is in our neighborhood ,that has my great interest. When you can see it by daylight ,and when it shines here at night as bright ,such as the suns magnitude on pluto. Yes THAT!! is what i am waiting for. Not a supernova in a far distant galaxy that is not visible with the naked eye and not even with your and (my) backyard telescope. The only thing is,forget that distant galaxy with the (possible) explosion that is invisible with backyard telescopes and the naked eye. What do you think about my story? Thanks. Denis12.
