Stardust

Think of it: a star 100 times larger than our sun, and scientists watched it before, during, and after its explosion! SN 1987a has been the most fantastic cosmic phenomena (in terms of supernovas exploding) in 400 years!  What will God think of next?

Stardust

You are supernova dust
A new creation
