Title: The ASAS-SN bright supernova catalogue – I. 2013–2014

Abstract

We present basic statistics for all supernovae discovered by the All-Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN) during its first year-and-a-half of operations, spanning 2013 and 2014. We also present the same information for all other bright (m V ≤ 17), spectroscopically confirmed supernovae discovered from 2014 May 1 through the end of 2014, providing a comparison to the ASAS-SN sample starting from the point where ASAS-SN became operational in both hemispheres. In addition, we present collected redshifts and near-UV through IR magnitudes, where available, for all host galaxies of the bright supernovae in both samples. This work represents a comprehensive catalogue of bright supernovae and their hosts from multiple professional and amateur sources, allowing for population studies that were not previously possible because the all-sky emphasis of ASAS-SN redresses many previously existing biases. In particular, ASAS-SN systematically finds bright supernovae closer to the centres of host galaxies than either other professional surveys or amateurs, a remarkable result given ASAS-SN's poorer angular resolution. In conclusion, this is the first of a series of yearly papers on bright supernovae and their hosts that will be released by the ASAS-SN team.

  • In this catalogue we summarize information for all supernovae discovered by the All-Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN) and all other bright (m peak ≤ 17), spectroscopically confirmed supernovae discovered in 2016. We then gather the near-infrared through ultraviolet magnitudes of all host galaxies and the offsets of the supernovae from the centres of their hosts from public data bases. We illustrate the results using a sample that now totals 668 supernovae discovered since 2014 May 1, including the supernovae from our previous catalogues, with type distributions closely matching those of the ideal magnitude limited sample from Li et al.more » This is then the third of a series of yearly papers on bright supernovae and their hosts from the ASAS-SN team.« less
  • Here, this paper presents information for all supernovae discovered by the All-Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN) during 2015, its second full year of operations. The same information is presented for bright (mV ≤ 17), spectroscopically confirmed supernovae discovered by other sources in 2015. As with the first ASAS-SN bright supernova catalogue, we also present redshifts and near-ultraviolet through infrared magnitudes for all supernova host galaxies in both samples. Combined with our previous catalogue, this work comprises a complete catalogue of 455 supernovae from multiple professional and amateur sources, allowing for population studies that were previously impossible. This is themore » second of a series of yearly papers on bright supernovae and their hosts from the ASAS-SN team.« less
  • The observational history of the Delta Scuti star AI CVn was traced, and it was found to be incomplete and contradictory. It is suggested that the star is misclassified as a spectroscopic binary in The Bright Star Catalogue and that simultaneous spectroscopic and photometric observations are needed to determine the true nature of this star. Spectra presented give the most precisely determined radial velocities to data. The line profiles show no indication of a double-lined spectroscopic binary. The FWHM of the lines vary due to pulsation only, and the line broadening can be explained by a quite plausible value ofmore » the rotational velocity. A list of 20 other bright star is presented, which could be misclassified as spectroscopic binaries and are, therefore, candidates for further study. 21 refs.« less
  • Radio sources in the second Bologna Catalogue (Colla et al., of Bright Galaxies (G. and A. de Vaucouleurs, 1564) and in Vol. 2 and 3 of the Catalogue of Galaxies and of Clusters of Galaxies (Zwicky and Herzog, 1563, 1966); the two samples contain respectively 25 and 40 identified galaxies. These objects have been observed at 1415 MHz at Nancay to obtain their spectral indices between 408 and 1415 MHz. It is shown that intrinsically bright spiral galaxies are more likely to be radio emitters than the fainter ones, and the radio luminosity function is derived for spiral galaxies. Usingmore » various criteria, it is confirmed that there exist two classes of elliptical galaxies on the basis of their ratio properties, and the radio luminosity function for the galaxies with rived.
