Supernova SN 2022hrs in galaxy NGC 4647 was discovered two weeks ago by amateur astronomer Koichi Itakagi. I took this picture last Thursday.

Very impressive picture. I tried from my backyard (Bortke 7) with a 180mm f/2.8 ED, but the sky was too hazy. In the 1990's there was a group at  the UC Berkley Astronomy department, which hunted for Supernovae with a big $$ effort. Maybe they have given up by now.
