The Flash Ionization of the Circumstellar Gas of SN 1987A

Abstract [en]

The photons from the shock breakout of SN 1987A ionized the gas they encountered in less than a few hours. Twenty years later the recombining circumstellar gas is still glowing. Here we discuss what the analysis of this emission has revealed about the structure and properties of the circumstellar gas, as well as about the properties of the shock breakout.
