(supernova recorded in China in AD 185)
SN 185 is a supernova noted by astronomers in China in AD 185.
Based upon descriptions of SN 185's position, its associated supernova remnant
is RCW 86, which was cataloged as an HI region in 1960,
and has since been studied as an accessible example SN remnant.
Current research suggests it is the remnant of a Type Ia supernova.
