Supernova emits them from the very commencement of the explosion, but it can flare up in the infrared or visible light is only a few minutes, hours or days. Chance to see a supernova explosion in infrared light within the Milky Way in the next 50 years is almost 100%, and in the visible range – only 20% or less, according to a paper published in the Astrophysical Journal .
