Zooming in on a Supernova


This video zooms into the galaxy catalogued as NGC 2525. The Hubble Space Telescope captured a series of time-lapse images of a supernova in that galaxy in 2018. It appears as a very bright star located on the outer edge of one of the spiral arms. The supernova initially outshining the brightest stars in the galaxy, but it fades into obscurity during the year of observations.
