The solar eclipse wasn’t the only celestial event for us to keep an eye on for 2024.

After witnessing the solar eclipse there is no doubt that God’s glory is evident in the heavens above. The next thing we are to keep our eyes out for is none other than the coming nova explosion. Here are three things you need to know about this cosmic event.

The “Blaze Star” will be visible sometime between now and September.

T Coronae Borealis, also affectionately known as the “Blaze Star” will light up the night sky sometime between now and September. Typically, the nova explodes almost every 80 years. This phenomenon happens because it is a “recurrent” nova, which means it happens more frequently than other novas which only explode every 100,000 years. The last time T Coronae Borealis was visible was 1946.

The explosion is a combination of two stars orbiting one another.

The “Blaze Star” is made up of a white dwarf star and a red giant which orbit one another. The white dwarf is further along in its death cycle, while the red giant is depleted of hydrogen. After a nearly 80-year cycle of orbiting, the heat between the two stars triggers the white dwarf to have a reaction. This causes the explosion that we see as a bright, nighttime star.

We don’t know exactly when it will be visible.

Unlike the eclipse, which had a set date and a time, the “Blaze Star” doesn’t have a definitive date and time for when we will see this nova explosion. However, when the star becomes visible, we will have multiple days to be on the lookout for it.

While not all Christians agreed on the eclipse being a sign from God, it is remarkable how this rare nova explosion is occurring in the same calendar year as the 2024 eclipse. From blood moons, to the devil comet, one thing is certain: the heavens are making themselves known in 2024.
