Abstract: Fysik i Kungsträdgården is one of the major outreach events in Stockholm where scientists have the chance to show their research. This year the supernova group at the OKC invited the public to look for supernovae with us using the intermediate Palomar (Transient) Factory (iPTF) collaboration telescope in Palomar, California, U.S.A. Due to the time difference between Stockholm and California, we were able to look at live images as they were taken from the telescope, to search for new transient objects such as supernovae. The event was successful, bringing a lot of people from the park in central Stockholm to come and search with us.
