Kepler's Supernova Remnant :: September 11, 2012: In 1604, a new star appeared in the night sky that was much brighter than Jupiter and dimmed over several weeks. This event was witnessed by sky watchers including the famous astronomer Johannes Kepler. Centuries later, the debris from this exploded star is known as the Kepler supernova remnant.

Was Kepler's Supernova Unusually Powerful? Kepler's supernova remnant is the debris from a supernova in our galaxy observed in Credit X-ray: NASA/CXC/SAO/D.

As a star's shell explodes outward, its core squeezes inward. The result can be a black hole or neutron star. This highly distorted supernova remnant, called may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy.

When the Chandra X-Ray Space Telescope observed Jupiter for its entire rotation, the northern auroral X-rays were discovered to be due to a single 'hot spot' that pulsates with a period of 45 minutes, similar to high-latitude radio pulsations.

GIANT SUPER-MAGNETIC STAR - NGC 1624-2, a newly discovered star 20,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Perseus, may be the most magnetic massive star seen yet, and it has a giant cloak of trapped charged particles around it. This star could shed light on the role magnetism plays in the evolution of stars and their galaxies.
