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
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.
This indicates that it is close to dying. But when exactly will the star kick the
bucket? When is it expected to go supernova and how will Earth be affected
if it does?
Join us as we explore how Betelgeuse is finally exploding in August 2022.
Movie stars, throwing stars, gold stars, and, of course, the stars in the sky
are just a few examples of the various kinds of stars.
The night sky offers a spectacular display of stars. Numerous stars make up
constellations, which are still used for navigation today and are arranged

brightest stars in our night sky, is one such star.
Betelgeuse is the dazzling, ruby-red, sparkling speck of light in the top right
shoulder of the winter constellation Orion the Hunter. Astronomers, however,

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
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
