Astronomy’s Martin Griffiths was among the hundreds of experts and enthusiasts taking pictures of the supernova (SN 2014 J) in the galaxy Messier 82 on Wednesday night.

This is the closest supernova to Earth in over 20 years.

Martin took the images using a 50 second exposure with an 80mm ED-PRO refractor telescope at f6.2. on a Canon 30D DSLR camera at 1600 ISO.
