Update on Supernova 2014J in M82

 Supernova 2014J in M82 is the brightest supernova we have seen in a while.   

SN 2014J is the closest type Ia supernova since 1972, and the closest of any type since 2004.  

Close - well, at a distance of 11.5 million light years, it's not really all that close unless you are an astronomer!
