    Around Jan-21-2014 a new supernova (exploded star) was discovered in the Ursa Major galaxy known as M82 (Messier 82). M82 is 12 million light years from earth so this star exploded 12 million years ago and will only be visible for several weeks before it fades out.

    This real-time video shows the cigar shaped M82 galaxy and it's supernova which is located on the right side of the cigar shaped galaxy structure:
