Watch a 58 year time lapse video of an expanding Nova

This is incredibly beautiful and captures the raw power of immensity of a star gone nova. In 1901, the star GK Persei, 1,300 Lights Years from Earth, exploded. Images of the remnant (Nova Persei 1901) by the Isaac Newton Telescope and the Nordic Optical Telescope in Spain spliced together allow a 3-D model to be created.
