  • Abstract We report the discovery of a likely supernova (SN) in the background field of the galaxy cluster Abell 1763 (aka RXC J1335. 3+ 4059, ZwCl 1333.7+ 4117). The SN candidate was detected in Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations collected on June 17, 2016 as part of the Reionization Lensing Cluster Survey (RELICS, HST program ID: 14096, PI: D. Coe).
