According to a 2007 paper there was no evidence for a neutrino burst of two or more events in Super-Kamiokande (SK) during the entire period of data taking from 1996 to 2005 from Andromeda or anywhere else. There is, however, a scenario under which a detectable signal could have been missed given the search method employed by the analysis, and it would have been found using an alternate method. The alternate method depends on the hypothesis that two of the neutrino mass eigenstates have masses…

Sterile neutrino fits to dark matter mass profiles in the Milky Way and in galaxy clusters

In recent papers it was claimed that SN 1987A data supports the existence of 4.0 eV and 21.4 eV active neutrino mass eigenstates, and it was suggested that such large active neutrino masses could be

Neutrino mass limits from SN1987A.

The Irvine-Michigan-Brookhaven data, with a higher energy threshold, primarily provide information regarding the total duration of the burst and bound 12 eV/c 2 is obtained.

Obtaining supernova directional information using the neutrino matter oscillation pattern

A nearby core collapse supernova will produce a burst of neutrinos in several detectors worldwide. With reasonably high probability, the Earth will shadow the neutrino flux in one or more detectors.

Observation of a neutrino burst from the supernova SN1987A.

A neutrono burst was observed in the KAMIOKANDE-II detector on 23 February during a time interval of 13 seconds and consisted of 11 electron events of energy 7.5 to 36 MeV with angles 18°±18° and 15°±27°.
