We present seven spectroscopically confirmed Type II cluster supernovae (SNe?II) discovered in the Multi-Epoch Nearby Cluster Survey, a supernova survey targeting 57 low-redshift 0.05 < z < 0.15 galaxy clusters with the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope. We find the rate of Type II supernovae within R 200 of z ~ 0.1 galaxy clusters to be 0.026+0.085 ? 0.018(stat)+0.003 ? 0.001(sys) SNuM. Surprisingly, one SN?II is in a red-sequence host galaxy that shows no clear evidence of recent star formation… Expand

Confirmation of Hostless Type Ia Supernovae Using Hubble Space Telescope Imaging
We present deep Hubble Space Telescope imaging at the locations of four, potentially hostless, long-faded Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in low-redshift, rich galaxy clusters that were identified in theExpand
Type Ia Supernovae: Colors, Rates, and Progenitors
The rate of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in a galaxy depends not only on stellar mass, but also on star formation history. Here we show that two simple observational quantities ($g-r$ or $u-r$ hostExpand
Type Ibn Supernovae May not all Come from Massive Stars
Because core-collapse supernovae are the explosions of massive stars, which have relatively short lifetimes, they occur almost exclusively in galaxies with active star formation. On the other hand,Expand
PS1-12sk IS A PECULIAR SUPERNOVA FROM A He-RICH PROGENITOR SYSTEM IN A BRIGHTEST CLUSTER GALAXY ENVIRONMENT
We report on our discovery and observations of the Pan-STARRS1 supernova (SN) PS1-12sk, a transient with properties that indicate atypical star formation in its host galaxy cluster or pose aExpand
The abundance and spatial distribution of ultra-diffuse galaxies in nearby galaxy clusters
Recent observations have highlighted a significant population of faint but large (r_eff>1.5 kpc) galaxies in the Coma cluster. The origin of these Ultra Diffuse Galaxies (UDGs) remains puzzling, asExpand
The Environmental Dependence of the Incidence of Galactic Tidal Features
In a sample of 54 galaxy clusters (0.04 < z < 0.15) containing 3551 early-type galaxies suitable for study, we identify those with tidal features both interactively and automatically. We find thatExpand
Hubble Space Telescope Imaging of the Ultra-Compact High Velocity Cloud AGC 226067: A stripped remnant in the Virgo Cluster
We analyze the optical counterpart to the ultra-compact high velocity cloud AGC 226067, utilizing imaging taken with the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) on the Hubble Space Telescope. The colorExpand
Enrichment of the Hot Intracluster Medium: Observations
Four decades ago, the firm detection of an Fe-K emission feature in the X-ray spectrum of the Perseus cluster revealed the presence of iron in its hot intracluster medium (ICM). With more advancedExpand
The Zwicky Transient Facility Bright Transient Survey. II. A Public Statistical Sample for Exploring Supernova Demographics
We present a public catalog of transients from the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) Bright Transient Survey (BTS), a magnitude-limited (m -16 mag), 10% in red-sequence galaxies, and 1% in massiveExpand
Constraints on the chemical enrichment history of the Perseus Cluster of galaxies from high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy
High-resolution spectroscopy of the core of the Perseus Cluster of galaxies, using the Hitomi satellite above 2 keV and the XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer at lower energies, providesExpand
