The supernova in M82 as imaged by Leonid Elenin
It would appear, anywhere but here
that a new super nova blazes in the heavens
Where all may look agape and wonder
at the violence done 12 million years passed
except we upon the plains of the formerly great
City of MetroParkCentralis
where the skies are always cloudy
when the heavens burn so bright

50 supernova per second in the universe. We haven't had one this close in hundreds of years.
Dennis di Cicco captured M82's supernova on the evening of January 22nd
