    When Betelguese explodes....

    When Betelguese explodes....

    ...Earth will experience day light for many weeks, and we will have two suns in the sky.

      Now that would be a thing to see, but i don't think anyone can predict when it will happen. And seeing that Betelguese is about 500 light years away, it could have happened 300 years ago!

      We on earth are 500 years behind the times when it comes to the affairs concerning Betelguese. I have often marvelled at the fact that when we look up at the stars, we are really looking back in time at how those stars were many many years ago.
      Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

        What you mention here is what is so extremely fascinating with the space... the universe.....

        The distances are so unreal, unfathomable... as you say, it might already have happened!
