There is another exciting show coming to our skies and I can’t wait!

Did you get to watch the eclipse? I’m in Texas and we had an amazing view of totality!

NASA says there is a “once-in-a-lifetime” event coming, and I am looking forward to it.

There is a star system that is 3,000 light years away from Earth, and it’s predicted that we will soon be able to view it because of a nova burst.

Seeing that star blow up is much rarer than a solar eclipse. So, it’s kind of a once-in-a-lifetime thing.

Bill Cooke told NPR

This event is viewable to the naked eye and should be visible for several days. After that, you can still view it, but you’ll need some stargazing aids to assist you.

The outburst will look like a new bright star in the night sky. It will be located near the Northern Crown (Corona Borealis constellation).

A nova burst only happens about every 80 years or so. The “blaze star” (also known as T CrB or T Coronae Borealis) is predicted to happen anytime between now and September. The last time was in 1946!

I can’t wait!
