Finding Supernova - Brent Nicholls
A New Zealand amateur astronomer has played a key role in the discovery of what could be the most powerful supernova ever detected. Nelson man, Brent Nicholls, has his own observatory in his back-yard. And he's been working with Ohio State University, and what's known as the ASASSN project - or the All Sky Automated Survey for Supernova, to find the exploded star. Brent is with us now from Mt Vernon Observatory.
