Can we see stars explode? My question is: Star 1 is 18 light years from Star 2 and 34 light years from Earth. If Star 2 explodes as a supernova, in how many years would the explosion be seen from Earth? 18 34 52 70 Here is the picture I was given: http://learn.flvs.net/webdav/assessment_images/educator_ess_v11/ouruniverse/aou024.jpg If we can see it, I would say 34 because light years are how long it takes us to get there.. Do you think that would be right?

    You have to extract the picture out from the website, I can't see it.

    All you need to do is calculate how far Star 2 is from Earth in light years. We can't see the image so there's not much more we can do to help.
