Have you ever been curious about what an exploding star might look like? According to Astronomers we're very close to being able to witness this exact thing.
The Huffington Post reports that binary star system KIC 9832227, located in the Cygnus constellation, will merge and explode in a "red nova."
Calvin College reports that its brightness will increase by 10,000-fold. Basically you'll be able to see it very easily.
Unfortunately we'll have to wait a little bit to witness this phenomenon. It won't be taking place until 2022. So sit tight and get ready!
