According to foreign media CNET, a violent explosion ruptured a star in our galaxy about 6400 light-years from Earth, sometime between about 80,000 and a million years ago. It leaves a ghostly red tendril-like dust and gas mass. These tendril-like dusts belonged to the remnants of supernova HBH 3 ​​and were first discovered in 1966.


Supernova remnants are something that still exists after the stellar explosion - these celestial bodies "sparklers" are very amazing.

NASA photographed the image through the Spitzer Space Telescope. The telescope is one of four space telescopes orbiting the earth that NASA fires, and it “sees” in the infrared spectrum. The Spitzer Space Telescope was launched in 2003 and was initially planned for a five-year observation mission. On August 25th, the Spitzer Space Telescope will celebrate its 15th birthday.
