SN 1987A (with sprites)

Post #1by Gurren Lagann » 16.10.2020, 00:42

Yesterday (as of the time I made this post), user Duglis asked about an addon including SN 1987A. Now that dream has been made a reality, and with sprites!

The "blob", which delayed the discovery of the neutron star to December 2019

Special thanks to:
Duglis - For posting the idea, and motivating me to make this addon
LukeCEL - For the nebula-making tutorial, and helping me (directly or indirectly) with issues of the mesh
pedro_jg - For confirming the correct orientation of the rings
Tziamtzis et al. 2010 - For measuring the orientation of SN 1987A
Cigan et al. 2019 - For finding the neutron star remnant and measuring the "blob" obscuring it
