Supernova (SN) iPTF13bvn in NGC 5806 was the first Type Ib SN to have been tentatively associated with a progenitor in pre-explosion images. We performed deep ultraviolet (UV) and optical Hubble Space Telescope observations of the SN site ∼740 days after explosion. We detect an object in the optical bands that is fainter than the pre-explosion object. This dimming is likely not produced by dust absorption in the ejecta; thus, our finding confirms the connection of the progenitor candidate with…

The possible detection of a binary companion to a Type Ibn supernova progenitor

We present late-time observations of the site of the Type Ibn supernova (SN) 2006jc, acquired with the Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys. A faint blue source is recovered at the SN

A cool and inflated progenitor candidate for the Type Ib supernova 2019yvr at 2.6 yr before explosion

We present Hubble Space Telescope imaging of a pre-explosion counterpart to SN 2019yvr obtained 2.6 yr before its explosion as a type Ib supernova (SN Ib). Aligning to a post-explosion

Supernova progenitors, their variability and the Type IIP Supernova ASASSN-16fq in M66

We identify a pre-explosion counterpart to the nearby Type IIP supernova ASASSN-16fq (SN 2016cok) in archival Hubble Space Telescope data. The source appears to be a blend of several stars that

The direct identification of core-collapse supernova progenitors

To place core-collapse supernovae (SNe) in context with the evolution of massive stars, it is necessary to determine their stellar origins. I describe the direct identification of SN progenitors in

On the progenitor of the Type Ibc supernova 2012fh

Little is observationally known about the progenitors of Type Ibc supernovae (SNe) or the typical activity of SNe progenitors in their final years. Here, we analyse deep Large Binocular Telescope

The resolved stellar populations around 12 Type IIP supernovae

Core-collapse supernovae are found in regions associated with recent massive star formation. The stellar population observed around the location of a SN can be used as a probe of the origins of the

The origin of the possible massive black hole in the progenitor system of iPTF13bvn

This letter complements a formation scenario of the progenitor of the supernova iPTF13bvn proposed in Hirai (2017). Although the scenario was successful in reproducing various observational features

SN 2020cpg: an energetic link between Type IIb and Ib supernovae

Stripped-envelope supernovae (SE-SNe) show a wide variety of photometric and spectroscopic properties. This is due to the different potential formation channels and the stripping mechanism that

SN 2017ein and the Possible First Identification of a Type Ic Supernova Progenitor

We have identified a progenitor candidate in archival Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images for the Type Ic supernova (SN Ic) SN 2017ein in NGC 3938, pinpointing the candidate’s location via HST Target

Dust formation and the binary companions of supernovae

Supernovae (SNe) should both frequently have a binary companion at death and form significant amounts of dust. This implies that any binary companion must lie at the center of an expanding dust cloud
