Extragalactic Novae - 2000

This data comes from IAU Circulars and occasionally more data will be provided on IAU's Astronomical Headlines page. An archive of the 2000 updates to this page is available.

Due to the large number of Extragalactic Novae announced in 2003 I have decided to give these novae their own archive, so that you don't need to hunt through the main 2000 supernova archive to find them.   Please note that I do not keep track of galactic novae.   This is a partial list of the Extragalactic Novae discovered in 2000.   Current Novae can be found on the main page.
