Description

the red supergiant star betelgeuse, famously marking the leftmost shoulder in the constellation of orion the hunter, is poised to explode. it is dangerously close to having exhausted its entire stock of reactionable nuclear fuel, and it could go supernova any time within the next one million years — even right now. this artwork depicts this event as it might appear in the night sky, were betelgeuse to explode in modern times. it shines an uncharacteristic, steely blue. red supergiant star betelgeuse, found at the leftmost shoulder in the constellation of orion the hunter, is poised to explode. it is close to having exhausted its entire stock of reactionable nuclear fuel, and could go supernova any time within the next one million years. this artwork depicts this event as it might appear in the night sky, were betelgeuse to explode in modern times. it shines an uncharacteristic steely blue.
