Strange Nova

Here is a story on a nova [or nova-like] occurance where huge concentric shells of dust were blown off, revealed via 'light echoes' and the star remained cool through the entire event. [2000C] Very strange.

FYI The sun is about 15,000,000 C at its core and around 6,000 C on the surface. The corona is around 1,000,000 C.

That dang star sure blowed-up good!
