Scientists Predict Star Collision? Reply

According to scientists, a star collision will occur in the constellation, Cygnus causing a light so bright, that it will be visible in the night sky.  Although the idea is a hypothesis, it is backed up by evidence of an exploding star long ago and is believed to be set in 2022.

So far, stars have been observed and studied for four years now, the difference today, is that the orbit has been slowing down its pace.  Based on the observation, it is believed to be following a path of another star that exploded unexpectedly in 2008.  

Calvin College Professor, Larry Molnar, says that the two stars are orbiting right now, and “share a common atmosphere like two peanuts sharing a single shell.”  

Scientists predict those two stars, called KIC 9832227, will eventually “merge and explode … at which time the star will increase its brightness ten thousand fold becoming one of the brighter stars in the heaven for a time.”That unique bright star is called the Red Nova.

“To tell whether the prediction of the stars are wrong or right will be simple, no telescope will be needed to show proof.”  “It’s a one-in-a-million chance that you can predict an explosion,” Molnar said of his bold prognostication. “It’s never been done before.”
