Two smaller stars are about to collide (or rather, already did about 1800 years ago) and the light of their merger will light up the sky.

NS, I think we need to enjoy the stars, which saw the dinosaurs and when people lived in a cave in the best case. Sometimes I do not understand how people do survive in those conditions.

It's weird to think that we are still seeing the light from stars that died millennia ago and currently no longer exist.
