It is the closest supernova in many years, despite the fact that it’s some 11-12 million light-years away. On a January or February evening, come to know the red star Betelgeuse in the constellation Orion.” THE COSMOS NEWS. ”It’s not only one of Orion’s brightest stars. It’s also a star that astronomers know will one day explode as a supernova. And it’s only 430 light-years away!

  • It already exploded and we will see the super nova in 35 years.

  • its due to go super nova wtf have you been??????

  • Well which is it? 430 light years away or 11-12 million light years away?

    Apparently neither. It’s 642.5 light years away.

    And it’s expected to go supernova sometime in the next million years.
