I witnessed a supernova

  1. Dec 31, 2013 #1
    Yes, tonight, right past midnight while I was driving home. I was looking at Orion through my windshield at the red light, when the light turned green I started to accelerate, just as I started, Orion's arm exploded.


    This is it, one of the greatest moments I've always dreamed of. I pulled over almost immediately with my phone.

    Then it faded.

    Just a new year's firework.

    I'm just glad I was unable to see Uranus.
