 A study of SN 2016gkg




On 20 September 2016 the amateur astronomer Victor Busso (a professional locksmith) from Rosario (Argentina) discovered a supernova at NGC 613 just at the moment of initial brightening. This is the first opportunity that so early data is available for a supernova. Since then on, this object has been observed carefully making it possible to have data covering the entire evolution of the supernova. Here I shall present an observational study of this object together with hydrodynamic simulations of its light curve and a binary evolution model that accounts for the characteristics of the progenitor.
