On May 19, 2023 a new Supernova in the famous Pinwheel Galaxy (also known as Messier 101) has been discovered by Koichi Itagaki. This discovery is particularly remarkable because it is the closest supernova discovered during the latest 10 years (about 20.9 million light years from our galaxy) and it has the chance to become bright enough to be visible with relatively small astronomical instruments.
