Photo of galaxy NGC 2770 showing location of star and lines from John Keats' poem.

Optical image of host galaxy NGC 2770 obtained with Gemini North (GMOS) on March 6-7, 2008. John Keats' sentiments from "On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer" must describe what researches experienced last week when they witnessed a star dying in real time.

Credit: Arthur Quiller-Couch, edit. 1919. The Oxford Book of English Verse: 1250-1900. Image: Gemini North (GMOS).
