Some 11,000 years ago, people living in the Southern Hemisphere of Earth must have been completely amazed by a ‘short-lived star’ which was sssso bright that it could be seen even in daytime. That suddenly brightened star was at the final stage of it’s lifetime and what we saw was actually a Supernovae Blast – the end of a supermassive star.
Now, 11000 years later, we still can see the remnants of that stellar outburst. What has been clicked here, is a small part of that remnant. At the center is the core of that long-dead star – in the form of a Pulsar. The remaining gas and dust remnants have shaped themselves in a perfectly linear pattern 5 light years long, hence earning for themselves a popular name called the ‘Pencil Nebula’.
