Before the final push to Earth, if Tali is alive but Garrus was killed during ME2, Tali can be found in the Main Battery. She has some things to say about our favorite turian.
SUPERNOVA: the death of a Supergiant Star

Massive stars undergo a violent death when the supply of nuclear fuel in their cores is exhausted, resulting in a catastrophic “core-collapse” supernova.
Such extreme outbursts are usually detected only after the event—at least a few days after the star has exploded.
[However], observations of the supernova SNLS-04D2dc with the Galaxy Evolution Explorer space telescope reveal a radiative precursor from the supernova shock before the shock reached the surface of the star and show the initial expansion of the star at the beginning of the explosion.
