    Pretty big explosion. I doubt anyone will notice anything from it.

    Quote:I agree with you. That said, the explosion is pretty mind-boggling in and of itself. That white area could hold quite a few planets the size of this one within its boundaries.

    There was an explosion before it that I think was able to release a lot of nitrogen gas that were able to have a nuclear fusion reaction that was just building up over time.

    I wonder will we have any effect from this ? how long will it take the heat from the explosion to reach Earth?
