M51 Gives Birth (again) to New Supernova

The yellow arrow points to new new supernova in my favorite galazy, M51
I know I should probably like my own galaxy best, but it's kind of boring from my perspective. M51 is the coolest.

From this blogpost in Universe Today..

To think that star actually went nova 50,000,000 years ago, and we're just seeing it now. Space is really big.

Have a good weekend all.
