    Post Upcoming supernova expected in 2022



    "Our night sky could be set to include a new star in 2022, if the predictions of a group of astronomers turn out to be correct.
    A professor who has been studying a binary star system, two stars orbiting each other, claims they will soon start to merge together to create what he has dubbed 'Boom star'.
    The stars will end their lives in an explosion, known as a supernova, he says.
    This will be will make them ten thousand times brighter than they already are - producing one of the brightest stars visible in our sky."

    Default Re: Upcoming supernova expected in 2022

    UPDATE: This is actually going to be a "red nova", which is not the same as a supernova. The title is somewhat misleading in that way, but in either case this should still be a very interesting event to see.
