Today's Lumptoid* – Sanduleak -69° 202a

Sanduleak -69° 202a was the Earth name of an unassuming blue supergiant star near the Tarantula Nebula as shown by the white arrow on the picture to the right. This star went supernova as shown in the left picture and became the trigger for The Great Economic Hiccup on Zgrunturos.
