A new visitor in the night sky

Exploding Star: New Supernova Discovery Is Closest in Years »

An exploding star has suddenly appeared in the night sky, dazzling astronomers who haven’t seen a new supernova this close to our solar system in years.
Also amazing to know: It was first discovered by university students in London. 
It’s visible in the Northern Hemisphere between the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper. The last greatest view the earth had of this type of event was in 1987.. 
Very cool stuff in the night sky.
