I love to gaze at the stars and yet I have never seen a shooting star. Perhaps this year I will if I catch a meteor shower. I've already missed two of these but hope to catch others. I love the sky in general: day or night because it reminds me of God's power and how small I am to the universe and so much more about God. But night is definitely my favorite to look up. :)

For reasons unknown, star V838 Mon's outer surface suddenly greatly expanded with the result that it became the brightest star in the entire Milky Way Galaxy in January 2002. Then, just as suddenly, it faded. A stellar flash like this has never been seen before. It's true that supernovae and novae expel matter out into space. But while the V838 Mon flash appears to expel material into space, what is seen here is actually an outwardly moving light echo of the bright flash.
