Description

While looking at the current extragalactic supernova list at http://www.supernova.thistlethwaites.com/ I noticed a bright one in NGC 2146 discovered on 3/2/2018 and remembered I was sure I had imaged NGC 2146. I looked up my archive of images captured over the last few months and sure enough, I found an image from May 8, 2018. I think I might have even put it on my imaging list to look for the supernova, but forgot! So here is the image. Cool galaxy that I need to look at again, with or without a supernova.
