    Astronomers at Ohio State University says that we will a supernova take place in our galaxy in the next 50 years.  A supernova, or a star exploding, is one of the most brilliant events in the universe.  The astronomers say we still don’t know a lot about supernovas so the chance to actually observe one in our own galaxy will help us understand them so much more.  But we might not have the best view thanks to soot-like dust particles in the Milky Way that absorb light and could obscure the spectacle. Chances of catching it wit the naked eye depends on your latitude or through use of specialized telescope say researchers.
