It is established that stars eventually die, but scientists may have discovered a novel way how stellar units make their final departure from the cosmos.
Sightings from the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System telescope in Hawaii has suggested a unique cosmic flare symbolising the death of a star.
The phenomenon has been dubbed the “Cow”.
Swift and bright, the unusual sighting in the demise of a star was spotted in the Hercules constellation and appeared to be brighter than an ordinary supernova.
Some scientists believe that the recent display may have been a part of a larger cosmic landscape or event, as experts begin to discover previously unknown characteristics of distant space through the advancement of technology.
