Starlight provides memorial
March 27, 2008
Scientist told us that the light from an exploding star 40 times the size of the sun briefly appeared in the night sky last week. For a few hours, it could be spotted shinning in the sky as brightly as the stars in Orion’s belt although few of us would have noticed the star’s unexpected and sudden appearance.
