WHT supernovae update

Just over half way through our first night now and we’re well on track. Mark and I are happy to report that we are currently taking data for our 9th object of the night. Thank goodness for clear skies!

Of the 8 objects we already have, we are confident that most of them are supernovae of one type or another. We will keep you posted on the exact number of correct identifications, as well as their type, when we have reduced our spectra.

Exciting stuff!
