Supernova in Mill Hill

Many years ago I spent a cloudy evening at the University of London’s observatory – in the heart of Mill Hill (presumably when this was built it was many miles from un-natural light and well beyond the city limits.) We ended up playing chess indoors.

Well, it seems city lights are not necessarily a barrier to discovery – as a team there seem to the ones that first spotted a supernova in M82.
