    Default Exploding 'cow' seen in space might be first black hole birth ever seen.



    Last June, an incredibly bright supernova known as "The Cow" (officially known as AT2018cow) ripped across the sky, hovering above the Earth for a number of weeks. While The Cow provided significant excitement for astronomers, who learned it traveled 200 million light-years, new research suggests that it was the birth of a black hole or neutron star, a first in the history of mankind. You can read more about it and see the photograph from the Keck observatory telescope here, at:
