The video and the photo are artist renderings of what astronomers have seen for the first time. It’s a whole galaxy lighting up. https://mashable.com/article/space-gala ... activation

WOW, that would be a sight to see, a sun going nuclear, and the cloud being pushed back from the center.
Mass, and pressure, kind of like a stellar diamond being born.

Would it end human life or even all life in the Milky Way if it happened in our galaxy ?

Now NASA has released actual photos of this lit up galaxy. You can see how the actual photo compares to the artist’s rendition of it. https://www.space.com/hubble-space-tele ... laxy-photo

Well we have our own supermassive hole we spin around, and smaller ones orbiting with us, so who knows how one going off will do us.
If close it could make it like a popcorn factory, and bounce stuff into our little space.
I would be more worried though about rogue objects flying in, a piece of an exploding nova, a rouge brown star, or another super heavy object we don't see.
Some rays also can be dangerous for us, some can wipe everything out.
