Star Explodes Inside Another Star

On 12 February 2006, amateur astronomers reported that a faint star in the constellation of Ophiuchus had suddenly become clearly visible in the night sky without the aid of a telescope. Records show that this so-called recurrent nova, RS Ophiuchi, has previously reached this level of brightness 5 times in the last 108 years,most recently in 1985.
