It is a red giant. It has alread doubled in size It has already shead an outer layer We will not be witing 5000 years for it to go.....I would think in the next 100 years it will go and than tuen into a black hole. So much for the home or our Ancient Alien family members home in the belt of Orion. For what it is worth. Have fun. Enjoy the moment. :ufo56: [/quote] [quote:aether:MV8xOTI4ODE0XzM1NzcyOTgxXzdFRDIyOTkw] [b]Red giant star Betelgeuse mysteriously shrinking[/b] http://www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2009/06/09_betelim.shtml [Quote:observation]This is understandable if we know that Betelgeuse is in a filament, and we are seeing it with a light path that grazes down along and into the filament. First, what they are not seeing: Betelgeuse is not changing in size. They say it's not changing in brightness,but it's changing in size? So it's getting hotter? No, they don't see that either. Mainstream or EU, you can't have a star getting smaller in size, without getting dimmer, unless it kicks out more light /unit area (changes spectrum). Remember the work of Ed Dowdye Jr?[color=blue] He showed that light was bent as it grazed the sun. Not because of gravitational bending of space, like the mainstream thinks, but simply from passing though all the plasma right at the sun's surface. Bent in the direction of increasing plasma density.[/color] Well,if the plasma in a current filament does the same thing, and we see Betelgeuse with light that leaves the filament on a grazing path (we are looking mostly along the filaments edge), then light from Betelgeuse is bent towards the filament surface. The changes in path length from one side of Betelgeuse to the edge, are merely a function of how much plasma we are looking through at the time. So Betelgeuse's size and parallax distance are both going to be skewed by this viewing angle through all that plasma. (even a low plasma density filament gets to be a lot of plasma when you look down through it They measured the size of Betelgeuse by interferometry, and located the bright spots on it using the same method. Of course,interferometry depends crucially on the light path. [color=blue]The mainstream knows this, and has developed ideas to test for warped space or gravity waves using interferometry. But if Ed Dowdye is right about plasma bending light, then all their measurements are in question.[/color] Looks like Dowdye did for interferometry, what Arp did for the redshift/distance scale.[/Quote] [/quote] [/quote]
Roughly 1000 times the diameter of our Sun and shining 100 000 times more brightly, Betelgeuse's impressive statistics come with a cost. For this star is likely on its way to a spectacular supernova explosion, having already swelled into a red supergiant and shed a significant fraction of its outer layers...
...The new far-infrared view from Herschel shows how the star's winds are crashing against the surrounding interstellar medium, creating a bow shock as the star moves through space at speeds of around 30 km/s...
... An intriguing linear structure is also seen further away from the star, beyond the dusty arcs. While some earlier theories proposed that this bar was a result of material ejected during a previous stage of stellar evolution, analysis of the new image suggests that it is either a linear filament linked to the Galaxy's magnetic field,
or the edge of a nearby interstellar cloud that is being illuminated by Betelgeuse.
If the bar is a completely separate object, then taking into account the motion of Betelgeuse and its arcs and the separation between them and the bar, the outermost arc will collide with the bar in just 5000 years, with the red supergiant star itself hitting the bar roughly 12 500 years later.
