SN 1997cy/GRB 970514: A New Piece in the Gamma-Ray Burst Puzzle?
We present observations of SN 1997cy, a supernova (SN) discovered as part of the Mount Stromlo Abell Cluster SN Search (Reiss et al.), which does not easily fit into the traditional classification scheme for supernovae. This object's extraordinary optical properties and coincidence with GRB 970514, a short duration gamma-ray burst (GRB), suggest a second case, after SN 1998bw/GRB 980425, for a SN-GRB association. SN 1997cy is among the most luminous SNe yet discovered (MR ≪ -20.1, H0 = 65) and...[Show more]
