Imagine, if you will, a small, very dense star of a type known as a white dwarf. Imagine this star orbiting a much larger companion star, syphoning off its companion's gas and claiming it as its own. Imagine the dwarf gaining so much new mass that it reignites its thermonuclear furnace[^], blowing up in an explosion so bright that it will, briefly, outshine the whole galaxy. Imagine this light traveling for millions of years, until it reaches a tiny speck orbiting an ordinary star in the backwaters of another galaxy.
 
Or, you can just see it[^].
