A viral video shared by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), shows an exploding star captured by the Hubble Telescope.
NASA that often shares photographs or videos that go massively viral shared a 30-second clip on October 1, showing a star explosion in a galaxy far, far away – 70 million light-years away from Earth. “This video zooms into the barred spiral galaxy NGC 2525, located 70 million light-years away in the southern constellation Puppis. Roughly half the diameter of our Milky Way, it was discovered by British astronomer William Herschel in 1791 as a “spiral nebula.” The sharpness of the image increases as we zoom into the Hubble view” reads the description of the video on YouTube.
