2008ApJ...682.1065B Shell Revealed in SN 1979C Bartel, N.; Bietenholz, M. F. Abstract. VLBI observations at 5 GHz have revealed that supernova 1979C, in the galaxy M100 in the Virgo Cluster, has shell structure. The shell is approximately circular, with the 50% contour deviating from a circle by an rms of no more than 8% of the radius. The brightness distribution along the ridge may vary. The position of the center of the shell is at R.A.=12^h^22^m^58.66758^s^ and decl.=15^deg^47'51.9695" (J2000.0), with a standard error of 0.8 mas in each of the coordinates. No isolated central component is visible above a flux density limit of ~150 muJy, which corresponds to an upper limit of ~15 times the corresponding spectral luminosity of the Crab Nebula. The radio light curve is clearly falling again, and the radio spectrum is now flatter than at earlier times. SN 1979C is only the fourth, and oldest (optically identified) supernova of which a detailed image could be obtained.
