The micronova ejecta might follow a spherical path. S0 has reported recently on a 'kilo-nova' observed, that likely destroyed the star, but surely any planets it may have had. Our Sun has instead, recurrent micro-novae.

Entry wound of a fulgurite.
Fulgurites are natural tubes, clumps, or masses of sintered, vitrified, and/or fused soil, sand, rock, organic debris and other sediments that sometimes form when lightning discharges into ground. Fulgurites are classified as a variety of the mineraloid lechatelierite.Wikipedia
What's new lately with lightning is that the once rare ground-to-sky bolts are becoming more common. The Earth's magnetic field is all twisted.
