Astronomers are eagerly anticipating a unique celestial event that will result in a "new star" appearing in the night sky, sometime between now and September. This extraordinary event, known as a Nova, is expected to occur in the Corona Borealis, or Northern Crown constellation of the Milky Way. The Nova will be visible from the Northern Hemisphere, and is predicted to reach a brightness level similar to that of Polaris, or the North Star.
