  4. Supernova Supernova is an exceptionally violent explosion of a star. In a supernova event, a star will rapidly increase its luminosity to roughly 109 solar luminosities. In the Milky Way galaxy, supernova events happen about once every 30 years. Most occur behind a layer of dust in the galaxy, and cannot be seen The supernova of 1006 was recorded by the Chinese. The event reached a maximum of about 1/10 as bright as the full moon.
