Default Supernova Outburst Caught in the Act

An amateur astronomer captured the outburst of a supernova in another galaxy in a series of photos- this article has a GIF of the images over 90 minutes as the supernova becomes visible. Just incredible- I've looked at plenty of supernovae in other galaxies, and always wondered how fast one of these would brighten.

There seem to be several objects changing brightness. Which arm, what quadrant should I be looking at?

Lower central part of the images. This article below has the supernova marked in one of the pictures, and has other images in sequence, though not animated in a gif.
