Star Explosion: The Biggest Astronomical Event That Can Be Seen With The Naked Eye In 5 Years, Scientists Claim, Is There A Catch?
A team of astronomers have recently made their bold prediction about a celestial phenomenon that will allegedly be the biggest astronomical happening to be seen by the human eyes. In 2022, scientists have anticipated that an exploding star is believed to engulf the night sky, making it as one of the brightest objects in the sky for a short span of time. While a number of experts believe that it's notoriously hard to predict when such stellar catastrophes will occur, it was found that this binary pair known as "KIC 983222" is allegedly engaged in a well-set dance of death that will inevitably come to a head in the next few years.
Star Explosion: The Biggest Astronomical Event That Can Be Seen With The Naked Eye
In one of his statements reported by Inquirer, Lary Molnar, a Calvin College professor, together with his students, along with his other colleagues from Apache Point Observatory, Karen Kinemuchi and the University of Wyoming's Henry Kobulnicky have all claimed that KIC 983222 will allegedly merge and detonate into a sky of "red nova." Furthermore, the experts have also revealed that if their prediction have been proven to be true, they added that the star's brightness will expectedly increase by 10,000-fold and become the shiniest object in the night sky that can be seen even without the help of telescopes or binoculars.
On the other hand, according to Canada Journal, Molnar's exploration into the star that will allegedly explode had begun way back in 2013. It was found that Molnar has reportedly looked at how the color of the star correlated with brightness and determined it was definitely a binary. As a matter of fact, he reveals that the star was actually a contact binary, wherein the two stars are known to share a common atmosphere; just like in the case of two peanuts sharing a single shell, he explained. The Professor adds that although it marks the end of life for the star, a new star will be expected to be born from its place in the Northern Cross formation. Ultimately, during his talk about potential gravity of the matter, Matt Walhout, dean for research and scholarship at Calvin College has claimed that the proposition is considered to be significant not only because of the scientific results, but also because it is likely to capture the imagination of people on the street.
