Supernova Pictures, excellent pictures of Supernovas taken with Telescopes
Welcome to this part of our astronomy website. Here
are some of our favorite pictures of supernovas. Feel free to download any of these great
pictures of supernovas to your computer for personal use. Click on the supernova

A supernova (plural:
supernovae or supernovas) is a stellar explosion that creates an extremely luminous
object. A supernova causes a burst of radiation that may briefly outshine its entire host
galaxy before fading from view over several weeks or months. During this short interval, a
supernova can radiate as much energy as the Sun would emit over 10 billion years
Goodness gracious, this great ball of fireand
by "fire," we mean vast wisps of interstellar gasesis the youngest known
remnant of a star explosion in the Milky Way, our home galaxy.
A giant red star (right) blowing gas
onto a white dwarf star caused an explosion so violent that it could be seen 8,000
trillion miles away on Earth without a telescope on Feb. 12, 2006.
THIS SUPERNOVA JUST WON'T FADE AWAY
Scientists have found that a star that exploded in 1979 is as bright today in X-ray light
as it was when it was discovered years ago, a surprise finding because such objects
usually fade significantly after only a few months.
Three mysterious debris rings
surrounding Supernova 1987A were formed during an ancient two-star merger that eventually
led to an enormous stellar explosion, a new computer model suggests.
Brightest Known Supernova Detected

This artist's illustration provided by
NASA shows what the brightest supernova ever recorded, known as SN 2006gy, may have looked
like when it exploded.
