made a supernova list

Made a SkyTools list based on the NASA Night Sky Network ASP outreach material, naked eye stars that are likely to go supernova. It contains 34 stars. I learned of the materials from Bryon Czarnik and shortly after I downloaded the PDF guide. But it kept falling off my radar. I forgot to consider these kinds of targets for my latest The Sky This Month presentation. Even with the recent Betelgeuse kerfuffle. In fact, there are a bunch in Orion. So I added a reminder trigger to my TSTM workflow notes and I thought an observing list for SkyTools will help when I'm doing outreach stuff at the telescope (whenever that might resume).
