See a supernova in your garden

hasanabbas1987 wrote You want to have an overview of the supernova astronomers have discovered the closest in the last 25 years? All you need to do is get a small telescope or binoculars (some digital SLR and would do very well). Astronomers think they could have found the supernova in a few hours of the initial explosion, Aug. 24. Generally, the supernovas are about 1 billion light years but it is only 21 million light years. The supernova is in the Pinwheel Galaxy, and you can see in the Great Bear.
