An image of the area of M82 acquired from the Keck Observatory using the NIRC2 instrument and the Keck II Adaptive Optics (AO) system showing the supernova SN2014J. By accurately matching the NIRC2 image to an archival HST image, astronomers can infer properties of the progenitor star or progenitor system that led to the supernova, confirming or discarding different hypotheses.
