ASASSN-15lh

A recent discovery:

ASASSN-15lh is the most luminous supernova ever detected; at its brightest it was approximately 50 times more luminous than the whole Milky Way galaxy, with an energy flux 570 billion times greater than the Sun. …According to Krzysztof Stanek of Ohio State University, one of the principal investigators at ASAS-SN, “If it was in our own galaxy, it would shine brighter than the full moon; there would be no night, and it would be easily seen during the day.”
