Looking to the stars

See a Supernova!!!

You may remember when we were learning about space that we talked about whether it was possible to see an exploding star – a supernova. Well, last week scientists discovered one taking place in the Pinwheel galaxy! If you have a pair of binoculars or access to a telescope, you will be able to see a star exploding…the biggest explosion of your lifetime!!! But be quick, it will only be visible until the 9th of September.

If you are interested in finding out more, take a look at this post on Blogstronomy which will tell you how to find it.
