Astronomers have been baffled by an explosion, usually caused by the death of a massive star, only thing is, it occurred thousands of light-years from the nearest cluster of stars.

The blast, one of the brightest this year, was detected by spacecraft from the Inter-Planetary Network on Jan. 25 and satellites were used to pinpoint its location to a region of the sky in the constellation Gemini.

Full Story

One of the biggest this year and yet we have no idea where it came from.

Isn't it cool when that happens? I love it when black holes reach mass density and the process reverses itself! But wow! Out of thin ether?

GRB 070125.... that sounds familiar...

Edit to add: Oh.. look at the date of the OP. Now I remember.
