I am awaiting/observing the impact of the energies reaching earth from this DOUBLE supernova. According to my info the changes from this cosmic sonic boom started last october 30th.

Chandra Uncovers Youngest Supernova in Our Galaxy

By examining a cloud of exploded remains, NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has "carded" a supernova remnant to reveal its underage status. At a mere 140 years old, G1.9+0.3 is the youngest known supernova remnant in the Milky Way. The materials surrounding it are still expanding at almost 35 million miles per hour, an unprecedented speed for a supernova remnant.

The most recent supernova in our galaxy has been discovered by tracking the rapid expansion of its remains. This result, using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory's Very Large Array, will help improve our understanding of how often supernovae explode in the Milky Way galaxy.

The supernova explosion occurred about 140 years ago, making it the most recent in the Milky Way. Previously, the last known supernova in our galaxy occurred around 1680, an estimate based on the expansion of its remnant, Cassiopeia A.
