We present the discovery and follow-up observations of SN2008jb, a core-collapse supernova in the southern dwarf irregular galaxy ESO 302-14 (MB = -15.3mag) at 9.6Mpc. This nearby transient was missed by galaxy-targeted surveys and was only found in archival optical images obtained by the Catalina Real-time Transient Survey and the All-Sky Automated Survey. The well-sampled archival photometry shows that SN2008jb was detected shortly after explosion and reached a bright optical maximum, Vmax ≃...[Show more]
