Supernova SN 2013ct in galaxy NGC 428

Supernova 2013ct is a Type Ia discovered by Stu Parker (BOSS – New Zealand) on 10/5/13 when it was at it’s peak magnitude of around 12.2.  It has now faded to approx mag 15.4

NGC 428 lies in the constellation Cetus approx. 37 million light years away. The galaxy has a distorted shape perhaps resulting from the collision of two galaxies.
