Grab your binoculars - the brightest supernova explosion since 1957 will be visible across Britain this week

By Rob Waugh, Dailymail

There will be a once-in-a-lifetime event in the night sky over the next few days – as a star exploding 21 million light years away becomes so bright it will be visible through binoculars across Britain.

The supernova is predicted to reach its brightest between September 9 and 12, and will be the brightest since 1954, visible all over Britain, weather permitting. A team of scientists at Oxford University are tracking it using the Hubble Space Telescope.

The explosion is so bright because the star is very close to Earth, cosmically speaking, in the Big Dipper constellation, Ursa Major. Most supernovae are more than 1 billion light years away.

too long for  those who grieve; too short for those who rejoice.

But for those who love, time is eternity."

I've read where many scientists believe the "Star" was a supernova. Wikipedia mentions it (link below). Why not? God created it all for God's purpose. Yee ha ! !
