Tycho brahes supernova 1572
The red circle visible in the upper left part of the image is SN 1572, often called Tychos Supernova. This remnant of a star explosion is named after the astronomer Tycho Brahe, although he was not the only person to observe and record the supernova.1 Tycho Brahe's 1572 supernova as a standard type Ia explosion revealed from its light echo spectrum Oliver Krause1, Masaomi Tanaka2, 3, Tomonori Usuda4, Takashi Hattori4, Miwa Goto1, Stephan tycho brahes supernova 1572

The red circle visible in the upper left part of the image is SN 1572, often called Tycho's Supernova. This remnant of a star explosion is named after the astronomer Tycho Brahe, although he was not the only person to observe and record the supernova. SN 1572 (Tycho's Supernova, Tycho's Nova), or B Cassiopeiae (B Cas), was a supernova of Type Ia in the constellation Cassiopeia, one of about eight supernovae visible to the naked eye in historical records. It appeared in early November 1572 and was independently discovered by many individuals.tycho brahes supernova 1572 Jun 26, 2003 Tycho Supernova Remnant. This is a ROSAT HRI observation of the supernova remnant Tycho. The explosion of this Milky Way star was observed by the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe in the year 1572. (Credit: S. L.
