Using data from the Lick Observatory Supernova Search
, a survey of nearby galaxies, the team compared the supernovae rate in outer spiral galaxies with that of known hosts -- dwarf/satellite galaxies -- and found comparable numbers for typical spiral outskirts and typical dwarf galaxies, roughly two core-collapse supernovae per millennium.
Among the first was the Lick Observatory Supernova Search
(LOSS), which uses the 30-inch Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT).
SN 2009ig was discovered less than a day after it exploded by the Lick Observatory Supernova Search
. It was found in the galaxy NGC 1015 at a distance of 127 million light-years in the constellation Cetus, the sea monster.
Noticeable is that this SN was also independently discovered by the Lick Observatory Supernova Search
(LOSS) group, less than a day later, just showing how dense SN search coverage is these days.
