N 103B

(supernova remnant in the LMC)

N 103B is a supernova remnant in the Large Magellanic Cloud, considered likely the remnant of a Type Ia supernova. It located is on the edge of a HII region and not far from a stellar cluster of young stars. It is presumed to be less than 2000 years old, based upon its small size and other analysis.

The name N 103B stems from a 1956 catalog of Lyman alpha sources in the Magellanic clouds, "N" indicating an emission nebula. It has since shown in numerous radio and X-ray surveys.
