Swope Supernova Survey

(SSS)
(survey of low-redshift Type Ia SN lightcurves)

The Swope Supernova Survey (SSS) is a survey of near-redshift (z<0.1) Type Ia supernovae to acquire photometric light curves, using the Swope Telescope and du Pont Telescope at Las Campanas Observatory in Chile. These are follow-up observations to known supernova, among them, those discovered by QUEST. An aim is to provide data on a number of such SN for studies and analysis, such as calibrating wider SN surveys.

The survey provided images in which the optical counterpart to GW170817 was identified.
