Supernova SN1987A: 30 years since discovery - Part I
by Dick Manchester (CASS)
The prompt radio burst, from Turtle et al. 1987, Nature 327, 38, with observations from Molonglo, Fleurs (both within 24 hours of the optical SN announcement) and the Parkes-Tidbinbilla Interferometer (PTI) one day later). This burst decayed away and was undetectable at Molonglo (and all other radio telescopes) after September 1987 (Ball et al. 2001, ApJ, 549, 599).
