Abstract

A supernova explosion will exhibit a light curve distinct to each type after it fades away from peak irradiance. Supernovae are thus categorized by observable characteristics, namely, their light curves and spectrum. By carefully observing a supernova’s light curve over a period of about two months, the type can be deduced. Using the Fort Lewis observatory, I attempted to formulate light curves for a few recently observable supernovae to see if the types could be gathered.
