Vega is the fifth-brightest star in the night sky here on Earth. It is also the brightest star in the northern constellation of Lyra. It has been studied so much that it is in fact nicknamed "arguably the next most important star in the sky after the sun."[Sic] Around 12,000 B.C., when humans were thought to have walked to places on Earth such as Australia and New Guinea, was when Vega was the Northern Pole Star. Today that star is Polaris. Thought Vega is old, The Sun is tenfold the age of Vega making it relatively young.
A Nova is an Astronomical phenomenon that begets a spontaneous appearance of a bright apparently new star that will fade in brightness over the period of many weeks or months. The different causes of a nova are as divergent as they come. One Thing is in common however; All Novae or Novas, involve a white dwarf within a near proximity binary system. The Main Classes of Novas are The Classical Novae, Recurrent Novae (RNe) and The Dwarf Novae. All three classes are considered cataclysmic variable stars.
The Classical Nova
The Classical Novas are the most common form of Nova. The Creation of Classical Novas are probably a close binary system encompassing a white dwarf and either A Main Sequence Star, A Giant Star or a Red Giant Star. The Orbital period of The White Dwarf and it's companion star is around one day to several days long. Over the days of these orbits, the accreted matter of the companion star will be pulled to the surface of The White Dwarf which in turn, creates a dense and shallow atmosphere made mostly of hydrogen. This hydrogen is then heated by the white dwarf and the high temperature rise high enough to ignite causing speedy runaway fusion. The Spontaneous increase in Power and Energy expels the atmosphere into Interstellar Space which then creates an envelope seen by the observer as visible light. This is why a nova can be mistaken for a new star being born.
Recurrent Novas are novae that continuously bursts in intervals. These type of Novae are rare with only 10 known in Today's World (May 2020) The Intervals typically occurs in the magnitude of decades.
Dwarf Novae, also known as a U Geminorum-Type Variable Star, is a novae that mocks the same quality of The Classical Novae, except is much dimmer, less Grand, and repeat more frequently than The Classical Novae.
Magnets, they stick together when a Positively Charged side and a Negatively Charged Side face each other. All who graduated Elementary School should know this basic fact. These magnets and even the ones on thy refrigerator are actually quite weak when compared with a Magnetar. A Magnetar a Neutron Star with a Super Extremely Powerful Magnetic Field.
The Magnetar can have a magnetic field range of 100,000,000,000,000 gauss to 10,000,000,000,000,000 gauss or 10,000,000,000 Tesla to 1,000,000,000,000 Tesla. A gauss sometimes symbolized as G or Gs, is a cgs unit of measurement named after German Physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss. A Tesla, symbolized by T, is a unit of magnetic induction used in The International System of Units named after the Serbian-American inventor Nikola Tesla. A Magnetar's magnetic field will decay in Power of the emissions of X Rays and Gamma Rays overtime. Like Normal Neutron Stars, Magnetars are also usually 20 Kilometers or 12 Miles in diameter and are twofold as massive as The Sun in our Solar System.
The Powerful First Discovery
The First Magnetar was discovered in March of 1979. At this time on the fifth of March, two Soviet Union space probes (unmanned) were struck by an Awesome Blast made of Gamma Radiation. The reading of radiation on the two probes, Venera 11 and Venera 12, in the timespan of a millisecond, went from 100 counts per second to 200,000 counts per second! An almost Instant change. Eleven seconds later, The Awesome Blast of Gamma Rays Attacked The Nasa Space Probe, Helios 2. The Blast was 100 fold that of a Solar burst from The Sun! This blast was discovered to being coming from Galaxy, Large Magellanic Cloud. The preparater, SGR 0525-66. The First Magnetar was discovered. This event would go on to be known as GRB790305b.
Pulsars, Pulses from Neutron Stars & Quasars, Pulses from Black Hole. Balzars or Blazors are Active galactic nucleus that with a jet comprised ionized matter, is directed at the observer on Earth. A Blazor comes from The Center of a Galaxy that contains a Supermassive Black Hole. The Ionized matter itself travels at near light speed toward the observer.
The First Blazar was discovered in the late 1950s via Radio Astronomy. The Blazor is a Powerful source of energy emission all across the electromagnetic spectrum. The Blazar comes in two categories, The BL Lac Objects & The Optically Violently Variation (OVV) quasars. In visible-wavelength images, almost all blazars are seen to be compact and like a dot, but high resolution images have revealed that Blazors are located at the centers of elliptical galaxies. Large one's with Supermassive Black Holes to be exact. The Blazor is powered by the matter fallout of The Supermassive Black Hole in The Center of The Elliptical Galaxy.
