What's the death of a sun/star called? Or the big explosion that makes it collapse into a black hole??? (And don't say Super Nova cause it's not...)

The explosion of a star is called a supernova. Not all stars produce supernovas when they die though, only the really big ones.Smaller stars become planetary nebulae, and then fizzle out into dwarf stars.
