Supernova 2008a is the brightest object ever observed....

I enjoy mind blowing stats like the following "Supernova 2008am, is 3.7 billion light-years away from Earth. At its peak luminosity, it was over 100 billion times brighter than the Sun. It emitted enough energy in one second to satisfy the power needs of the United States for one million times longer than the universe has existed"
