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 pictures to make them bigger.

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

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.
