Hubble captures an amazing photo of the “supernova” explosion !, Monday, September 7, 2020 10:49 am
A powerful star exploded in the constellation Cygnus the Swan, as a dying star was destroyed.
Amazing new footage shows the magnetic field structure of our star in high definition
The star was about 20 times the mass of our sun, and its collapse likely occurred 10,000 and 20,000 years ago.
The beautiful image shows only a small portion of the blast wave, which remained in the wake of the amazing astronomical event. And over the millennia since the supernova, the remnants have expanded 60 light-years from their center.
Interestingly, the remnants continue to expand at an amazing speed of 350 km per second. Because the star fragments from the explosion mixed with low-density interstellar material, they create the wonderful veil-like structure pictured in the photo.

In 1991, Hubble captured another image of the Cygnus explosion, and spotted a small fraction of the remnants.
