According to NASA, astronomers anticipate that a "new star" will emerge in the night sky at any moment between now and September. This celestial spectacle is expected to be once in a lifetime.

A nova is the quick, brief explosion from a collapsing star known as a white dwarf, whereas a supernova is the catastrophic death of a large star.

When stars run out of hydrogen for nuclear fusion and start to fade, red giants are created. After roughly 5 or 6 billion years,

The stars in the orbiting pair are close enough to each other that they interact violently.

The red giant becomes increasingly unstable over time as it heats up, casting off its outer layers that land as matter on the white dwarf star.

T Coronae Borealis last experienced an explosive outburst in 1946, and astronomers are keeping a watchful eye on the star system once more.

The NASAUniverse account on X, formerly known as Twitter, will provide updates about the outburst and its appearance.

Glancing at the sky, I noticed that the constellation of Cygnus was messed up; there was a star that shouldn’t be there.
