    Betelgeuse, a supergiant red star only 700 light years away, is showing signs that it might explode into a supernova soon. It has dimmed 60% which is a potential indication that a supernova is forthcoming.

    “Some astronomers speculated the the 60% swing detected between October last year and this April was related to an imminent supernova – imminent in cosmological terms that is, within the next 100,000 years.”

    Betelgeuse has dimmed 60% ahead of potentially imminent supernova

    If it explodes this year, another sign of the end times. Then again it might be years (hundreds of years, thousands of years, one hundred thousand years…whatever..it’s still alarming!) before it explodes.

    Remember, don’t say Betelgeuse three times.

    So this is what causes the murder hornets to go berzerk and start attacking, correct?

    It may already have happened.
