There's Going to Be a New Star in the Sky

The sky is always changing! In four or five years, researchers predict that we'll be able to look up and witness an outer space oddity: colliding stars that are 1,842 light-years away from Earth. Their explosion should be about ten thousand times brighter than the stars themselves, so they'll appear to be a bright "new star." Discover more about this collision in the following video, then learn some cool star facts.
