A supernova explosion may be brewing.

According tomedia reports, Betelgeuse is a giant red supergiant, in 2019, it is the 10th brightest star in the sky. But over the past few months, its brightness has plummeted and it is now ranked only 24th, leading astronomers to wonder if it is ready for a spectacular supernova explosion.

Edward Guinan of Villanova University and other astronomers shared a brief update on Siu, which reported that the four-year-old’s stars were twice as weak as they were in September. Stars, etc., are the levels of brightness that astronomers give to objects in the night sky. In other words, this change in size means that The four-year-old was 2.5 times brighter in September than it is now.

“The latest luminosity observations show that in our 25-year luminosity measurements, The four are the lowest brightness and the lowest temperature so far,” the astronomers wrote. “

Sacebu IV, an ancient star whose life is coming to an end, is expected to become a supernova sometime in the next 100,000 years, and what it may see now is the pain of the pre-death period, and of course something else.

Astronomer Tony Phillips wrote on his website Spaceweather.com: “It is speculation that the four-year-old is shrinking, whether it is obscured by a giant sunspot, whether it is shrouded in a stardust eruption, or is about to explode.” “
