Looks like a "Supernova" to me.. I'm quite sure that's what the term is for this.

Revelation 21:6.........And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Wow- some great screen saver pics! I can't get enough of these far away shots at what lurks beyond the earth, so lovely and awe-inspiring. That Rex-helix novae looks just like the old CBS logo, I swear, uncanny!

Carl Sagan: "How is it that we can see stars that are billions of light-years away from us if the Universe is only 6,000 years old (according to Christian Bible)? Light travels at a constant velocity, 186,000 miles per second and it takes billions of years for light to traverse these tremendous distances to reach our eyes; the Universe is certainly billions of years old."
