It's not actually a supernova, but pretty cool nonetheless.

common sense is an oxymoron: Better article from the BA here.

FROM THE BAD ASTRONOMER: "First, despite appearances, the cloud itself is not changing in these images! It's actually fairly static, with movement far too small to notice on this timescale. What you're seeing is actually a pulse of light from the outburst moving through the cloud, illuminating it."

Well that makes it about 10X more awesome.
