Scientists observe brightest star explosion ever seen

# Scientists observe brightest star explosion ever seen

Astronomers have spotted a record-breaking supernova — the largest ever observed. The spectacular stellar explosion released enough light to cover its entire galaxy, outshining normal supernovae by 500 times. 


The supernova was first observed in February 2016 by the Panoramic Survey Telescopes and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARSS) observatory in Hawaii.
