That's probably not a supernova, because supernovae tend not to have color, but rather appear much the same as a star. The green appears to be just static.
I like to find asteroids and galaxy mergers- but all galaxies are still fine to me.

That's really cool!I think watching the sky,the supernova is so attractive.However,when I come out at night,I can't see anything in the foggy sky!
Quote from: Wiki
Aaaand it's the closest white-dwarf supernova seen in a long time  in that perennial favorite local starburst galaxy M82. Twitter and Facebook have been aflurry all day (I learned about this explosion from Twitter first thing this morning, for those who question the scientific utility of social media).

Clouds were closing in as I was trying to get a suite of observations, but I did get this DSLR image (stack of 6x30s). This contrast is set up to make clear just how bright the supernova appears (at about 4 o'clock from the center of the galaxy). Visual magnitude 11 and still rising, probably for another week or so.

8) 8)UGC 02308  DR8

It's a great one, but you posted it back in January here. And I commented on that it might be a gravitational lens, and compared it to 2MASX J10011677+0217138 here. I knew it looked familiar.
:o No it appears you posted it here on the 4th. You just can't trust the search feature you known. ::) ;)

No actually, here is your post from January   ;) ;D
