Good afternoon from an overcast, chilly but beautiful Surrey.
The wonderful folks at the rather fascinating Paranormal Zone X site tweeted a link to a Cleveland Leader article concerning the discovery of a new class of supernova.

Science Now’s Sid Perkins also discusses the amazing discovery in his March 26th 2013 article, ScienceShot: A New Class of Supernova – ScienceNOW.
