Orion Is Visible Right Now, But Betelgeuse Is Not? - UPDATE: It's Visible Now - Continue To Go About Your Business
Right now I can see Orion clearly unblocked in the night sky, however 90 degrees upward and to the left of the leftmost star on Orion's belt, and approximately twice to three times the length of the belt therefrom, is where Betelgeuse should be but I cannot see anything there at all.

Is this the same for anybody else?

Although it IS working on going nova, is it not?

One of several in our 'local' space that stand a chance of making a mess of things here, possibly.

Ok, I just went and looked again and I can see it now.

It's a little more to the right, than I expected and must have been slightly obscured by clouds I could not see before, as it appeared to be very faint and blue in color instead of red, just a few minutes ago.

It was only blue temporarily, probably due to unseen interference of some sort blocking the red color from my view.

Just save the pic and play around with the brightness and colour you can see it shrink from what it was IMO

There's already a thread out here about it having already blown in 1400 something. (1495 ???)

And we just are awaiting the time for the changes in light to get here, so we can actually observe it.

not really, blue and red are at OPPOSITE ends of the spectrum. not really sure what sort of interference could possibly cause THAT much of a shift in an object's colour.

we could call today 'Sir Kalin's day', in honour of the man who first saw our doom approacheth!

Assuming Sir Kalin saw it right, I wonder what kind of interference could make it to be seen as blue - atmospheric?

Our sun is literally almost nothing compared to Betelgeuse.

(our sun is almost invisible in that comparison pic, the little white dot is Sirius)

If she's indeed going supernova, I think the only thing we can do is a massive orgy of sex, drug and rock and roll to end our existence with a "bang".
