One of the first modern day Nova sightings was made by
Voituret Anthelme in 1670 and the Nova was named
Vulpeculae. A Nova is a star that has been re-ignited after being
a dormant white star for many years.
The star is then attracted to another orbiting star's hydrogen,
and then the white dwarf explodes, and becomes bright
for days or weeks at a time. Nova's can be as far or close to Earth as any 2 stars are, as long as one of those stars is a white dwarf, or a dormant star. A Nova explosion can vary in size,
but the star explosion can expand from 100, to
about 10,000 times the normal
light it gives off A Nova can take over a star, or multiple stars, but overtime the star will die out again, and return to a White Dwarf star. NOVA! A Nova explosion is special because it symbolizes
a new star, even though there really is no new store. Interesting Facts about a Nova explosion is when the star explodes it blows off it's outer shell to show the inner shell, the Milky Way experiences about 40 Novae explosions a year, and most scientist say that Novae reoccur every 1000 years.
