A burst of eight neutrino events preceding the optical detection of the supernova in the Large Magellanic cloud has been observed in a large underground water Cherenkov detector. The events span an interval of six seconds and have visible energies in the range 20–40 MeV. 

The search for neutrino bursts from supernovae with Baksan underground scintillation telescope

The current status of the experiment on recording neutrino bursts from core collapse stars is presented. The actual observational time is 29.76 years. An upper bound of the mean frequency of core

The supernova in the large magellanic cloud

Abstract The appearance in February 1987 of a naked-eye supernova in a nearby galaxy to our own was the first supernova of this brightness for 383 years. Neutrinos detected from the supernova marked

The detection of neutrinos from the supernova explosion SN1987A, and its significance for models of stellar evolution and for elementary particle physics are reviewed. Consideration is also given to

Twenty years of Galactic observations in searching for bursts of collapse neutrinos with the Baksan underground scintillation telescope

The results of twenty-year-long Galactic observations in neutrino radiation are summarized. Except for the recording of a neutrino signal from the supernova SN 1987A, no Galactic bursts of collapse

An ultrahigh-energy neutrino event detected with the IceCube detector in Antarctica, simultaneous and co-spatial with a multi-wavelength outburst of a blazar about 3 billion light years away, points

The neutrino signal from SN 1987A.

The year 1987 is famous in astrophysics and Astronomy as the year when the first ‘nearby’ supernova in modern times was observed. Although the optical observations were important, pride of place must
