Galactic Boooooommmm

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows a nice astronomical view of several galaxies, noteably NGC 1055 in the top of the field and Messier 77 along the bottom right (and several stars of varying color scattered around and at least one galaxy in the distance). The unchanging sky has changed, however. Messier 77 has brightened as a star in one of its arms has gone supernova!
