All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae

(survey of both hemispheres for supernovae)

The All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN) is a Survey using four telescopes at Haleakala Hawaii, and four at Cerro Tololo, Chile. It is apparently unrelated to the All Sky Automated Survey.

It aims to find supernovae and other Transients, and can detect new objects with Magnitudes 8 to 17. Discovered objects will be labeled ASASSN-xxxx, the later part being two digits and two letters.
