Hubble captures incredible star explosion in four-year time-lapse video
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has been observing the V838 Mon light echo since 2002. Each new observation of the light echo reveals a new and unique “thin-section” through the interstellar dust around the star. This video morphs images of the light echo from the Hubble taken at multiple times between 2002 and 2006. The numerous whorls and eddies in the interstellar dust are particularly noticeable. Possibly they have been produced by the effects of magnetic fields in the space between the stars.
Watch a video of the full time lapse here

I don’t want to alarm anyone, but on Saturday, the moon ate Saturn.
I guess it finally got tired of it showing off those rings.
(just kidding, this was a rare and wonderful occultation of Saturn by the moon, captured here by Colin Legg. Read more at Bad Astronomy)
