A supernova occurs during the end of a star’s life when destruction is marked by one final, colossal explosion causing the appearance of a “new” star that will gradually fade from sight over several weeks, months, or years.
Did Benjamin Banneker witness a Supernova during his many years of observing the stars?
Nobody knows for sure since all of his research, writings, and worldly possessions (including his famous clock) were thought to be destroyed in a fire set by arsonists on the day of his funeral.
