Super Nova SN2012aw

Well had one clear night last week. Took a shot of the new supernova in M95 - SN2012aw. M95 is pretty close to us - only 37 million light years away so the event we're seeing now happened a scant 37 million years ago. I've marked the location of SN2012aw so you can see it better.
