Dawn of a new Era for Supernova 1987A


Recommended Posts

The Supernnova from 1987 is beginning to fade away.

The shockwave from the Supernova has lit up an old ring of ejected matter from the progenitor star and destroys it in the process.


It will be amazing what structures will be lit up next, as the shockwave continues to travel through space.


These real-life pictures are for me much more impressing than any SF imagery.
