[ExI] Betelgeuse

It may mean nothing, it probably means nothing, but ... in the last 4
months Betelgeuse has decreased in brightness, it is now the dimmest it's
been in recorded history, and a very rapid dimming is exactly what you'd
expect to happen just before a red supergiant goes supernova. When it does
go supernova, which it certainly will very soon (astronomically speaking),
it will look like nothing ever seen before, brighter than the full moon but
with all the light concentrated at a single point. And the TV preachers
will have a field day.
