NGC 1309 ==> Supernova 2002fk transition[edit]

I understand this is a start-class article. The author no doubt intends to expand it. May I humbly suggest that the large image you get by clicking on the base image at http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130116.html be used for the large size? http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/1301/NGC1309_HLA_Pugh_960.jpg The re-processed image brings out the distant galaxies behind NGC 1309.

The paragraph on Supernova 2002fk seems that it might be a different article. Where is it located on the galaxy image? Having faded away, you probably won't be able to see it even on Martin Pugh's re-processed image, but it would tie the two subjects together. I know that Supernova 2002fk was discovered in NGC-1309, but that information is not mentioned in that section.

Would that I could be of more help; alas! I am a mere astronomy enthusiast.
