Subaru Telescope Sees 1800 Supernovae

Japanese astronomers have captured images of an astonishing 1800 supernovae. 58 of these supernovae are the scientifically-important Type 1a supernovae located 8 billion light years away and are known as ‘standard candles’ in astronomy.

Newly discovered supernova complicates origin story theories

Many supernovae show a gradual increase in the light they put out. But for ASASSN-18bt, you could clearly see there's something unusual and exciting happening in the early times - an unexpected additional emission.

Mysterious supernova explosion

Supernovae happen all the time, but this one was different. "Cow," as astronomers are calling it, was a massively bright explosion 200 million light years away.

New Mysterious Space Object Nicknamed "The Cow"

A mysterious cataclysm in a neighboring galaxy was spotted in the sky above Hawaii last week, sending astronomers around the world scrambling to understand the source of the staggeringly brilliant flash.

This Is the Most Distant Confirmed Supernova Ever Observed

On August 22, 2016, astronomers spotted a superluminous supernova whose light traveled over 10 billion years to reach us.

The Afterglow From Kilonova is Continuing to Brighten

Contrary to what was expected, a team of astronomers has discovered that kilonova event has been brightening ever since it first appeared.

The Star That Would Not Die

Astronomers have made a bizarre discovery; a star that refuses to stop shining.

First X-rays detected from mystery supernovas

Scientists appear to have found the first X-rays coming from type Ia supernovae.

Heart of an exploded star observed in 3D

The researchers have produced an intricate 3D rendering of newly formed molecules inside the supernova remnant using ALMA telescope.

Amazing New Views of Betelgeuse Courtesy of ALMA

Recently, the Atacama Large Millimeter Array gave us an amazing view of Betelgeuse, - the star that is destined to go supernova at anytime in the next few thousand years or so.

Astronomers Observe a Supernova Collapse in Real Time

With globe-spanning collaboration that enables to alert various telescopes to train their sights on the event, we are getting closer and closer to understanding how massive stars end their life and what leads up to the final explosion.

Two Stars Are on a Crash Course and Will Explode as a Red Nova

Mark your calendars: In 2022, a rare "red nova" will appear in the sky, according to an unprecedented and ultra-precise stellar prediction.

Earth interacted with supernova remnants for 1 million years

Discovery of a time-resolved supernova signal in Earth's microfossils. According to the researcher's analyses, our solar system spent one million years to transit trough the remnants of a supernova.

Caught for the First Time: The Early Flash of an Exploding Star

This animation is based on photometric observations made by NASA’s Kepler space telescope. By closely monitoring the star KSN 2011d, located 1.2 billion light-years away, Kepler caught the onset of the early flash and subsequent explosion.

Outstanding Time-Lapse of a Stellar Explosion From Hubble

In January 2002, astronomers discovered a massive explosion coming from V838 Monocerotis. They initially thought they were witnessing a supernova, but after the initial flash of light began to dim (as expected), it began to brighten again in infrared wavelengths at the beginning of March. After that brightening faded, another one happened in April.
