An Epic Nova Exploded In The Milky Way Visible To The Naked Eye

After 15 years from the last explosion, recorded on February 12, 2006, RS Ophiuchi – a so-called recurring Nova, that is, a star that increases its brightness at more or less regular intervals – came back to shine with overbearing power. Many people, once they heard the news, tried to look for the star, which appeared in the constellation Ophiuchus- This epic nova exploded in the milky way.

Five days after the explosion, in fact, the star had already returned to the limit of visibility to the naked eye and in mid-August it was already weaker than magnitude +8… It was necessary to look for it immediately, without basking in the idea that the star would remain visible to the naked eye for a long time..
