In the aftermath of the explosion, a supernova spreads a lot of energy in the form of luminescence light material and other stars at 30,000 km / sec.
Reported Geek, supernova was discovered by astronomer Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory University of Berkeley.

Joshua Bloom, assistant professor of astronomy, say, a supernova called PTF 11kly this is an important finding that will be a significant observational material to study.
