Supernova at Redshift z = 0.40

The image shows a supernova at redshift z = 0.40 (corresponding to a distance of about 6,000 million light-years) observed on five dates with the SUSI camera at the 3.6-m New Technology Telescope (NTT). The host galaxy is barely visible, most probably because it is a low surface brightness galaxy and the supernova brightness peaks around 16 March 1997.
