There's no record of this "supernova" being there until it's discovery, Which happened mighty late considering it's light hit earth roughly a hundred or so years ago
G1.9+0.3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Supernova remnant G1.9+0.3 in the constellation Sagittarius is the youngest known supernova remnant (SNR) in the Milky Way Galaxy.  The remnant's young age was ...
This "supernova" somehow managed to grew astonomically between those two dates.
The MOST observations are not at high enough resolution to detect significant changes in the size or mophology of G1.9+0.3 with time.
Twenty years of observations with the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope show that the young supernova remnant G1.9+0.3 has increased in brightness by 1.22 ± 0.24 0.16 per cent yr−1 between 1998 and 2007
Can you show us those two pictures? But it was Astronomers from Australia who confirmed it is a supernova remnant by studying 20 years worth of radiotelescope data, not NASA.
Basically, Nasa just gave us two pictures and said "It's a supernova, now shut up about it"
Maybe. But it's 24,000 light years away so, so what?
If this supernova hit our eyes about 100 years ago, at that growth rate it should be *GIGANTIC* by now.
