- Insane Curiosity
From what it could mean, to the various reasons for this phenomenon happening at all, join me as we explore betelgeuse continuing to DIM! What’ s really happening? Out in space in the Orion constellation, there is a very bright star in our night sky known Betelgeuse. To put it most simply, it is a red supergiant, and one that dwarfs many others stars in the sky. Such as the big star known as Rigel which it outsizes in a rather significant way. Mainly because this star is 1.3 BILLION kilometers long. That’s basically three times the size of Rigel, which for the record is 97 million kilometers long. So yeah, definitely not a small star.
