When Death Is Breathtaking: Supernovas Are The Art Of The Astronomy World

Supernovas that we can actually observe with the naked eye are few and far between. The last one, Kepler's Star, happened in 1604, and there are typically a few during each century.
Of course, we have powerful technology that allows us to photograph supernovas and because of that, we have beautiful, colorful photos of these star explosions. A one last burst of colorful light from a massive explosion that marks the beginning of the end for a star. It's positively beautiful and poetic.
