Astronomy Tuesday

NGC 7814 is known as the Little Sombrero Galaxy (to distinguish it from this Sombrero Galaxy. I still think frisbee is a better description than sombrero, but nobody asked me.)

What's interesting in this image is that very bright star just above the center of the galaxy: a supernova.
