Image Details:

Supernova 2023ixf is now magnitude 12 or a little brighter. It might get brighter in the next few days which makes this a very special event that occurs infrequently. Even after it fades months from now the information will be studied by the astronomy for many years.

The linked flickr image is huge and shows much more detail that cannot be seen easily on a screen as it is 15 x 12K
