Interesting, Betelgeuze's brightness has suddenly dropped to the lowest since measurements began.


Betelgeuse is a red supergiant variable star, its brightness varies…or maybe it will soon die in supernova…
Betelgeuse is ~700 light-years away from us, maybe the explosion has already occurred?
I can sometimes see the Winter Triangle when the sky is clear from my window at night with Betelgeuse, Sirius and Procyon.

Lucky you! The sky is often very cloudy where I live but when the sky is clear, it's wonderful.

Well it's cloudy a lot here too but I think what's more important is that there are no big cities in this region so light pollution is very low. Like the gold standard (as far as I see it) for light pollution is if you can see the Milky Way on a clear day and if I step outside the streets with streetlights and into the dark it's there on a clear day.
