Novae and Supernovae are a common, but usually unnoticed unless you are looking at the particular area of the sky. If you go out and look and see this (you can with binoculars), you will be seeing the birth of new atoms and the components for everything we are composed of. A nova is the mother event of worlds and life in the universe.

It is a birthday of sorts, and deserving of our attentions.
