Abstract

We present luminosity and temperature light curves following supernova shock breakouts through a thick wind. These events are very luminous and their spectrum may contain both an X-ray and a UV/optical component. For breakout pulse durations between a week and a month, the X-ray component luminosity peaks 100-500 days after the explosion, respectively.
