Astronomers are reporting that the super-massive star, Betelgeuse, located 1,300 light years from Earth in the Orion constellation, is rapidly losing mass and shrinking. When a star the size of this red super-giant begins collapsing it can only lead to one thing: a supernova. Betelgeuse is the second largest star in Orion and when it blows its intense light will be visible for weeks and could be seen across the Milky Way and eventually other nearby galaxies as well. That is, if there are others out there besides ourselves who are watching.
