A supernova is a star that has exploded. It was discovered a few days ago although the explosion occurred 12 million light years away.
From BBC News,
An exploding star has been spotted in the night sky – the closest supernova to Earth that has been seen in decades. The dramatic event happened 12 million light years away in Messier 82 – known as the cigar galaxy for its shape. It was discovered by undergraduates during a telescope class at the University of London Observatory. ”One minute we’re eating pizza then five minutes later we’ve helped to discover a supernova.

Thursday is the Second Annual K-5 STEM Book Swap.
We have a terrific selection of books already, but there’s always room for more!
We are asking for donations of gently used books for readers from kindergarten to fifth grade. Donations can be placed in boxes by the office door in the main hallway and in the library. Each grade will take turns going to the swap and every STEM student will be able to choose a few new books to take home!
Last year’s Book Swap was great fun and a huge success!
