xkcd recently had a "What If" about supernovae that mentioned the rule of thumb for how energetic they are: However big you think supernovae are, they're bigger than that..
His example was: What's brighter? A star going supernova as far away as the sun, or a hydrogen bomb going off on the surface of my eye?
The supernova, by a factor of a trillion.

it may have appeared as early as jan 14-15 so if you were imaging this thing, check if it's in your sub exposures. also if you are using a camera without anti blooming gates the data might have some scientific use...

Too bad Advanced Ligo hasn't come online yet. Seems like this would have been something really perfect for them to find.
