I had to read it again to make sure. What I meant was that we have an article with a sensational title that makes people think, "How can this be true? Sounds interesting. I'll read it." Then they read it, and it's not really that amazing. The title in this case makes it sound like this supernova is something that we could perceive tomorrow...and it could be! But, more likely than not, it isn't. So the article and its title aren't inaccurate, and they work because the event has a huge time frame in which it may occur. I'm not knocking it; in fact, I think it's brilliant.
This article title is a pretty good example of how to get tons of people to read something sensational and not be factually inaccurate: rely on something that could happen at any point from here on through infinity. Nonetheless, it was entertaining. I would love to live to see this, though with my luck it will happen during the summer in the northern hemisphere, when Orion is out of sight until right before sunrise in August. I guess that just means it would show up later in the day, which would be awesome on its own, but which would deny us the nighttime spectacle I'm imagining in my head.
Don't you mean "not be factually accurate" ?
