A couple of my family members were stargazing. I was not, as I become bored very easily. This is how it all went down.
Cam: Dad thinks there's a supernova out there!
Dad: I'm not sure, it's just brighter than normal...
Cam: See? It's a supernova.
Dad: ...although it might just be a planet...
Dad (looking on his stargazing app): ...ummm...it's....
Cam: It's a supernova!
Me: It's Venus.
Dad: It's Venus.
Me: Told ya.
