(Equation of State: Supernovae Trace Cosmic Expansion)
(survey using supernova data to study dark energy)

ESSENCE (for Equation of State: Supernovae Trace Cosmic Expansion) is a project to carry out Type Ia supernova observations and draw conclusions about dark energy. The search for supernovae was carried out on the Víctor M. Blanco Telescope, with follow-up observations with spectrographs. Observations were carried out 2002-2007.
