Fireworks Lighting Our Universe

Our dynamic Universe is adorned by cosmic fireworks: energetic and ephemeral beacons of light that are a million (nova) to a billion (supernova) times brighter than our sun. Just recently, we have discovered elusive explosions in the gap between novae and supernovae. Come hear about merging white dwarfs, binary neutron stars and the birth of black holes.
