Soon You’ll Be Able To Witness A Spectacular Show In The Sky That Can Rarely Be Seen With Naked Eye – A Collision Of Two Stars!
At the beginning of the third century on the territory of Great Britain a civil war was raging, a Roman emperor Septimius Severus was preparing for the great war of conquest in the north. At the same time, and that soldiers on the ground were not aware of this, two stars collided and caused a cataclysmic explosion.
Now, 1,800 years later, the light from this historical period will finally travel to earth and create a new star in the night sky. Such a spectacle can be viewed only through a telescopes, but in 2022 the two stars that will crash (in fact, they have already clashed) and will create a strong enough ‘explosion’ that will be visible to the human eye.
‘For the first time in history, parents will be able to show their children the birth of a new star in the sky, “says dr. Matt Walhout, dean of the University of Calvin in the US state of Michigan, who predicted this spectacular event.
It is estimated that the track of the collision will stay in the sky for a period of six months, and after going two to three years, it will gradually weaken and begin to shine like other ‘normal’ stars.
This is the first time that the experts managed to predict the birth of a new star, and this will be the first time that astronomers will be able record its creation in the sky.
Great news, especially for the citizens of Great Britain, is that it will be a new star in the constellation Cygnus, which is normally located high above the horizon and is particularly evident in the summer.
This is going to be a unique opportunity for astronomers, amateurs or professionals, but also lay people, to observe it, “said Dr. Robert Massey of the Royal Astronomical Society. Experts added that this kind of explosion in our galaxy occurs at least once every decade, but this is a precedent because of the proximity and strength of the entire process.
