The red sun began its descent into the horizon.

Everyone watched as it left earth, farewelling its loyal inhabitants.

But this goodbye... would be forever.

People watched as light began to grow... skin crisping, their agonising screams being heard around the globe.

It went supernova, exploding forth into the black abyss, enveloping planet earth within...

Humanity extinct.

A beautiful spectacle. It was seen light years away. A young alien asked his momma.

"Isn't space wonderful? Do you think we'll ever see life like ours?"

"One day, my child," she spoke back, hopeful. The two watched the supernova, loving its beauty.
