For those that don't know Gamma Ray Bursts (GRB's) are incredibly violent. Supernovae are nothing compared to the events that cause GRB's. To quote the NASA site

"The burst was brilliant enough that had it been in the nearby M31 galaxy in Andromeda, it would have appeared as bright as the full moon."
