Crab Nebula (M1) is in constellation Taurus was a supernova in 1054. Since reminant of this star is neutron star which also called pulsar. Most supernova is comes from red supergiant star before the explosion of the star. Before the explosion in 1054 there must have been a red star shining in the same location in the constellation Taurus. How come nobody ever recorded or reported any red star in the location of Crab Nebula before 1054. Since stars are listed in Greek Alphabet so this star must been listed.
