Hello Everyone,

The AAVSO is partnering with the SuperNova Early Warning System (SNEWS) team to create a new campaign centered around supernova progenitors. The goal is to keep track of bright stars that have the potential to go supernova reasonably soon so that we have a record of the star leading up to such a monumental event. This project is open to all observing types and has a large target list so everyone should be able to find a way to contribute. More information on this project can be found here. Please use this forum to ask any specific questions you may have. 

 

Clear Skies,

SNEWS Spreadsheet

I was looking at the SNEWS spreadsheet today, and it's not clear to me how many, if any, target stars still need dedicated observers. I may be interested in picking up some more targets if any remain. So, how many/which ones still need observers?

Lead time before images start appearing in VPhot

Hi

I put my name against a couple of targets in the spreadsheet a month or so back but haven't had any notifications or seen anything in VPhot yet. 

Is there a way to check to see when those targets have been added to AAVSONet? 

Thanks,

Is it needed to note projname in the FITS header of own images, got without AAVSOnet?
