  • We report the first measurement of proper motions in the SN 1006 remnant (G327.6+14.6) based entirely on digital images. CCD images from three epochs spanning a period of 11 yr are used: 1987 from Las Campanas and 1991 and 1998 from Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory. The filaments in SN 1006 are nonradiative, appearing only in the Balmer lines of hydrogen. Delicate filaments—probably thin sheets seen in projection—delineate the shock front along the northwestern rim of the remnant. We use… CONTINUE READING
