Usage[edit]

name 
Name of the supernova
image 
Image of supernova, in the format [[File:Example.jpg|300px]]
caption 
Image caption
epoch 
Date when the following parameters were known to be correct, usually standardised as J2000
type 
Type of supernova; see Supernova#Classification
SNRtype 
Type of supernova remnant, if applicable; see Supernova remnant#Types of supernova remnant
host 
Host galaxy of the supernova
constellation 
Constellation the supernova is found in
ra 
Right ascension coordinate, using {{RA|hours|minutes|seconds}}
dec 
Declination coordinate, using {{DEC|degrees|minutes|seconds}}
gal 
Galactic coordinates, if within the Milky Way Galaxy
discovery 
Date and location of discovery
mag_v 
Peak apparent magnitude
distance 
Distance from Earth, in light-years and parsecs. This can be performed using {{Convert}}. Applicable units include ly for light-year, kly for kilolight-year, Mly for megalight-year, Gly for gigalight-year; pc for parsec, kpc for kiloparsec, Mpc for megaparsec, and Gpc for gigaparsec
progenitor 
Name of the progenitor star
progenitor_type 
Type of the progenitor star
b-v 
Colour value of the supernova; see B-V colour
notes 
Brief description of notable features
