Researchers are awaiting an exciting event that will possibly answer many of the puzzling questions on how the universe began, when two huge stars will merge together.
The event will mark the first time ever that scientists will be able to witness how stars are formed, by shadowing the two stars that are "currently eclipsing or joining together," reported The Independent.
Since the event, known as 'MY Camelopardalis' has never been witnessed previously, scientists are not precisely sure what will happen when the two stars join, however they are predicting there to be a huge explosion followed by massive release of energy.
"MY Camelopardis, a very massive merger progenitor," Scientists at the Universidad de Alicante wrote in a research paper, describing the two stars as hot, blue and roughly 35 times the size of our Sun.

Researchers discovered the two stars that are already touching each other some ten years ago and had earlier assumed they were one star with varied brightness levels.
Rotating around each other at approximately 621,000 miles an hour, the two individual stars are predicted to have been formed 2 million years ago.
Stars wander across the galaxy, like the Sun, and often join together with companion stars by the pull of gravity.
