International Gemini Observatory Captures Birth of a Supernova

Back to article | Note about images

Photo of galaxy NGC 2770 showing location of star and lines from John Keats' poem.

Optical image of host galaxy NGC 2770 obtained with Gemini North (GMOS) on March 6-7, 2008. John Keats' sentiments from "On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer" must describe what researches experienced last week when they witnessed a star dying in real time.

Credit: Arthur Quiller-Couch, edit. 1919. The Oxford Book of English Verse: 1250-1900. Image: Gemini North (GMOS).
