It is located in the nearby galaxy, Centaurus A which is about 11 million light years away from us.
How could you possibly know how far away that galaxy is? Radiocarbon dating isn't that accurate.

If we allow magic light, it still would put the source within fifty two light minutes from the Earth.
Technically, if you allow magic light, the source could be anywhere.
I wonder if this supernova was the "new star" in the night sky signifying the birth of a Messiah somewhere in the Centaurus A galaxy?
Note: I'm enjoying the frivolity a bit here, but that doesn't mean I'm not interested. This is a really cool story!
