Is it true that if Betelgeuse was at the location of our sun, Earth would be inside of it?


Betelgeuse is so huge even Jupiter would be inside it. It probably won't happen soon but that dimming is a little suspicious and it's at a perfect distance  (650 light years) from us to go supernova, far enough to be safe but close enough to put on a great show.

It is really tenuous out there.  The planets could continue to orbit for a while inside the star.  Fat lotta good it would do em, but they could stay in a gradually spiraling orbit while they cook to vapor.
