Timelapse of a star exploding 20,000 years ago

The timelapse above occurs over the span of four years, captured here on Earth from 2002-2006.

The image below will give you a sense of scale. Note that it’s 13.6 light-years wide, and not even at the scale of our solar system. (Our solar system is roughly 8 light-hours wide.)
