A dazzling star explosion discovered in the night sky last week is the brightest nova seen from Earth in at least five years and it's visible now to the naked eye.
The super nova in the Constellation of the Dolphin is in close proximity to the STAR OF ANTINOUS.
The Nova Delphinus 2013 star explosion can be seen by the naked eye from places without too much light pollution, skywatching experts say. The stellar phenomenon is expected to be visible for weeks to come, and its location in the night sky should make the nova easy for even novice stargazers to spot.
The nova is easy to locate north of the lovely star pattern of Delphinus. And the constellation Sagitta, the Arrow, points right toward it. The image above is courtesy of Singapore-based astro-photographer Justin Ng who photographed Nova Delphinus 2013 on August 18, 2013.
Flamen Antonus Subia says this could herald a major celestial event:
"This constellation is literally right next to Aquila where the Constellation of Antinous is found ....
"I keep a constant vigil for these New Stars because I'm waiting for the news of a Nova Aquila ... which is a sign from the Star of Antinous ... I've seen three so far ... and they always mark great milestones of change.
"Delphinus is very close...we could be on the verge of a great one ... they supposedly come once ever 10 or 15 years in Aquila, and every century there's supposed to be a massive one. The brightest Super Nova ever recorded was in Aquila in 1918 ... so we are due for the Aquila Super Nova of the Century!"
