Comprehensive coverage

An example of a supernova detected by the Dark Energy Survey within the field covered by one of the few detectors in the Dark Energy Camera. The supernova exploded in a spiral galaxy with redshift = 0.04528, which corresponds to a light travel time of about 0.6 billion years. For comparison, the quasar on the right has a redshift of 3.979 and a light travel time of 11.5 billion years. Credit DES Collaboration/NOIRLab/NSF/AURA/M.
