This berrant type Ia supernova in the sky, first observed in 2003 and designated SN 2003fg has been nicknamed “Champagne Supernova” after the Oasis song.
This supernova is a very special one as SN 2003fg reached two solar masses before exploding, more massive than thought possible. The supernova occurred in some galaxy 4 million light years away.
Who would have thought that an actual supernova would be named after a song Noel Gallagher has been quoted as saying,
“Some of the lyrics were written when I was out of it.”
But then again, John Lennon had a crater on the moon named after him in 2009.
