It's a nova, rather than a supernova, Subby.  Still impressive, just a different thing.  It's also bright enough that it's visible to the naked eye now, depending on your location.  It's definitely visible with binoculars.   Here's some more detail on where to find it.

Not super interesting, but here is a picture that I took of it last night. About 20 seconds with an 8" telescope.
