Betelgeuse Is Dim

Found an interesting article HERE, Betelgeuse is dimmer than scheduled as per its particular pattern of brightness variation.

Orion, where Betelgeuse is found, is a very common constellation. It has two triangles, one perfect and one imperfect. Betelgeuse is the red looking star in the perfect triangle. When I was a kid, I decided I needed a lucky star, and picked that red one because I was sure I could find it again.

The article says it may go nova, or has gone nova already. Going Nova means blow up. Explode.

Just my luck, I finally get a lucky star and God blows it up. It would be cool to see though. It possibly would be brighter than our sun for weeks or months.

Have a great weekend!
