Follow Professor Ben Monreal and students on Twitter to replay the historic February 1987 events showing a supernova, visible to the naked eye, exploding in the sky.
Now known as “Supernova 1987A,” it was the first nearby supernova in the era of modern telescopes, cameras, and instrumentation, launching some of the most exciting and discovery-rich months of modern astronomy.
On February 23, the events will be replayed on Twitter. See more information, including classroom activities, Cleveland connections, and link to CWRU on the website. And follow @RealTime1987A on Twitter to see neutrinos, spectra, telegrams, photos, and other discoveries in “real time.”
