Hubble sees supergiant star Betelgeuse recovering after blowing its top #shorts


The first clue came when the star mysteriously darkened in late 2019. An immense cloud of obscuring dust formed from the ejected surface as it cooled. Astronomers have now pieced together a scenario for the upheaval. And the star is still slowly recovering; the photosphere is rebuilding itself. And the interior is reverberating like a bell that has been hit with a sledgehammer, disrupting the star’s normal cycle. This doesn’t mean the monster star is going to explode any time soon, but the late-life convulsions may continue to amaze astronomers.

  1. What we we saw happen in 2019 occurred 600 years ago…and this is why I love astronomy! It takes light around 600 years ago to get here from Betelgeuse and that is practically next door within our own galaxy. And what has happened in the time since light of 2019 event happened? We don’t know! Maybe it’s already gone supernova (studies seem to say it’s not likely) or maybe it’s had a few more like burps like this? I wish I could live to see the light from the supernova, but probably not.
