Hubble captures breathtaking star explosion in time-lapse video

A time-lapse video taken over four years by the Hubble shows a breathtaking explosion of a star bursting in outer space.

Emanating from V838 Monocerotis, a red star located about 20,000 light years away from the Earth’s Sun looks as if it could be a computer simulated model, but NASA says it’s a series of images captured between 2002 and 2006, according to the Telegraph.

Even if you’re not into astrology, this burst will give you pause. Enjoy via the Telegraph:
