Fireworks Galaxy NGC6939-SN 2017EAW

The image showcases the great variety of objects we can observe in the Universe. In the foreground we can see an enormous number of stars in our own galaxy; their colours are a result of their different temperatures. Within this galaxy we can also see a rare supernova, which appears like a bright star but is actually a powerful but shortlived stellar explosion. Additionally, we can see a dim integrated flux nebula (IFN) in the background. All of these objects can only be seen due to the large number of captures that were taken.

'Take more than a moment to explore this incredibly rich image and if you are lucky or just patient enough you will also discover a supernova!' Oana Sandu
