Hubble Finds Imperial Star Destroyer . . .

. . . or Something.

Astronomers peering through the Hubble have found something new.

Like, totally new. Like unprecedented. Like an object that no one has ever seen before.

It wasn't there. And then it was. And then it wasn't.

"We suggest that the transient may be one of a new class."

Freakin' great.

That is extremely cool. Good old Hubble! (But I hope it doesn't mean that the Shaa are on their way.)

I think it might have been a cambridge exploding. We had a Cambrian explosion on Earth about 530 million years ago. It was a big one. I am sure that if a cambridge exploded on Earth, they are exploding all over the Universe.
