Supernova 2023ixf in the Pinwheel Galaxy (Messier 101) was discovered on May 19 by amateur astronomer Koichi Itagaki. Last night I imaged the Pinwheel Galaxy and supernova 2023ixf. Although transparency was poor, the supernova is obvious when compared to an image of the Pinwheel Galaxy that I captured in March 2022.
