Betelgeuse Is FINALLY Exploding in August 2022!

Every journey has a beginning and an end, and so is the case for cosmic objects, one among them is a red supergiant star — Betelgeuse (pronounced “beetle juice”).

This star is nearing the end of its life and is headed for an explosion.

Since the world’s excitement about the mythical red supergiant’s lopsided dimming and shrinking reached a fever pitch two years ago, the renowned “shoulder” of Orion has attracted a lot of attention.

Astronomers, however, recognize it as a seething monster with a 400-day-long heartbeat of regular pulsations when they look at it closely.

Betelgeuse is easily recognized by its gloomy orange-red hue. It’s perfect for persuading skeptics that stars do, in fact, come in colors.

It is the second- brightest star in the constellation after the blue supergiant Rigel and is also referred to as Alpha Orionis.

Betelgeuse’s changeable nature, in addition to its unusual name, makes it an equally fascinating object for star studies and observations.

The brightest stars in their constellations are often those with the designation Alpha.

Betelgeuse, however, is Alpha Orionis even though Rigel, Orion’s other bright star, is brighter. It is also among the most well-known
