A light in the sky

This one made me feel a bit insignificant.

Scientists have detected an interstellar explosion so bright that it was briefly visible to the naked eye—from 7.5 billion light-years away. Viewers looking at the right patch of night sky on Wednesday would have seen several afterglows from the massive gamma-ray burst, slightly brighter than the faintest visible stars.

What the hell is happening out there? Could it be – I dare ask - global galaxy warming?
