Supernova, that is.

I'll just quote from the site:
Very, very cool news today: for the first time in history, astronomers have unambiguously observed the exact moment when a star explodes.

Read the Whole Thing.. It's not in Geekspeak either, it's well-written and understandable.

Despite the outer parts of the star being heated to several million degrees, this is indeed the epitome of Coolness.

Well, not exactly the exact moment. But what's a slight delay to get the information between friends?
