A " bright"supernova has been discovered by the Backyard Observatory Supernova Search (BOSS) in the iconic southern galaxy Centaurus A (NGC 5128).
Initially reported as V magnitude 14, subsequent measurements give a V mag of 15.7. It is probably a Type Ib supernova a week past maximum brightness, but is in a dusty part of the galaxy with significant reddening so it might be some other sort.
Observations are required to follow the evolution of this supernova.
Unfortunately it is very close to a bright star in the dust lane, so will be hard to separate out.
