Who are WE?
We are an amateur collaboration of 6 friends from Australia and New Zealand who have worked together as a group since mid 2008 to search, discover, record, and report new supernovae in the southern sky.
Our goal is to provide accurate and reliable discovery reports to the International Astronomical Union (IAU) through the Transient Name Server (TNS) https://www.wis-tns.org/ for further investigation by Professional Astronomers and their resources. As of January 1, 2016 the Transient Name Server is the official IAU mechanism for reporting new astronomical transients such as supernova candidates.
Prior to 2016 reports were sent to The Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams - CBAT operated at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University, Massachusetts, USA
