On May 27, 2014 at 9:21pm (est), a large flash of light was resulted from a bust in the Andromeda Galaxy M31 (our closest galaxy by 2 million light years). Three days on there is some questions about its origins and meaning, and even doubts that it happened. Let’s me real people.
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men
According to other psychics this event was predicted September 2013.
This Prediction has happened, previously it was debated as the ‘hand of god’ cosmos.
Notes on 9-27-13
“It’s the end of the world in the night sky, what a sight for Galileo” No it’s not the end of the world for us. My guess, Galileo being an astronomer would imply a massive explosion in space which explains the night sky.
The Facts on 5-28-14 by Phys.org: “NASA’s Swift satellite reported an enormous explosion occurred this morning at 8.15 AEST in our neighbouring galaxy, Andromeda. This explosion is known as a Gamma Ray Burst (GRB), one of the most powerful explosions in the Universe
The exact cause is unknown but thought to be an explosion from when two Neutron Stars collide. These Neutron Stars are the dead cores of massive stars, with the mass of our Sun crushed into the size of a small city. When they merge together, the explosion is so powerful it can be seen from across the Universe.” Quoted by:

Here is more on the story from a scientific view point.
Updated Sky watchers are rapidly turning their instruments in the direction of Andromeda, after NASA’s Swift spacecraft spotted what looks like a deadly gamma-ray burst spotted at 9:21 PM UMT, May 27.
That’s got astrophysicists excited, because Andromeda is our nearest galactic neighbour, which means the data collection from the event will be rich pickings that could stretch all the way to gravitational waves.
Since Andromeda – M31 to its familiars – is 2.5 million light-years distant, humans’ long-gone predecessors were fooling around with the first stone tools when the event actually took place.
Nature notes that if the burst was caused by colliding neutron stars, gravitational wave observations could be the result.
Sadly the world’s most sensitive gravitational wave instrument, America’s Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) is offline for a US$200 million upgrade and can’t be deployed for this event.
The first job the world of astrophysics has will be to analyse the data collected by NASA’s Swift spacecraft, which was the first to spot the event (gamma ray bursts, GRBs, are Swift’s mission, after all), and match it up with other observations. That will determine whether what’s just wiped out any nearby lifeforms in its path is a GRB or an Ultra-luminous X-Ray Object.
The reason for doubt is that while it’s close, the M31 event is pretty small as GRBs go. That makes some astronomers think the UXRO option is more likely. Even if that were so, its proximity would yield exciting science.
A third possibility noted by Australian astronomer Katie Mack on her @Astrokatie Twitter account is a neutron star in a binary system eating its partner.
