A supernova appeared two days ago in M82. Checking the clear sky forecast, tonight from 7:30pm until 9pm is our only chance to view it from Vancouver. Let's meet at the Spanish Banks in the furthest west parking lot. M82 is North, so we can set up our scopes beside our cars. This event is weather pending. There is fog expected later tonight... 10pm-ish, but if it arrives early, the event will be cancelled. Dress WARM, the forecast is freezing temperatures overnight
I found the supernova easily in my 6" Schmidt Cassegrain last night. It should be peaking this weekend.
