NASA: Most Recent Supernova Found in our Galaxy.

Over on the "The universe's filamentary web is slowly being revealed..." thread, I wrote:

(Discovery of Most Recent Supernova in Our Galaxy; NASA's release)
http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2008/ma ... rnova.html

(Others carrying the story, just in case)
http://chandra.harvard.edu/press/08_rel ... 51408.html
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20 ... 131118.htm
So, let's confine discussion of the "supernova" event to this thread, and the filamentary connections throughout the universe to that other thread, so there's no cross-talk or jumbling of the threads.

Am I missing something here? Surely if this thing went nova 140 years ago, it would have been recorded by the C19th astronomers?

They say it's hidden behind gas & dust so it must have been obscured...? But we can see it now 'cause it's x-ray bright, and Chandra is good at seeing that stuff.
