    One bright mofo in the sky about to die...

    As recently as October, Betelgeuse glowed around magnitude 0.5, considerably brighter than its nearby Aldebaran (0.9). But observations made this month by both amateurs and professionals indicate a steep drop in brightness. On December 28.2 UT, I used Aldebaran (magnitude 0.9) and Bellatrix to estimate the star at a feeble magnitude of 1.5, nearly equal in brightness to Bellatrix. In just two months it's fallen from 10th place to 21st

    Hope the aliens from that solar system don't find their way here, tbh.

    Trump needs to use his new space force to build a wall... of impenetrable magnetic gas around our solar system.

    If we get to see Betelgeuse supernova it will be ing incredible. The guest star in the Crab Nebula was visible in daylight in 1054 for more than 3 weeks and that was about 1/3 to 1/2 the mass of Betelgeuse and about ten times farther away. Betelgeuse's collapse into a stellar black hole should be way more violent than the collapse into a neutron star that created the Crab Nebula. God what I would give to see it. I can't believe they have narrowed its death to only a 100,000 year span though. Is it already thought to be fusing iron in its core?
