en-A mystery of a giant star has been solved
Breaking news! Chinese researchers, after much research, have managed to explain the mysterious blurring of Betelgeuse. Betelgeuse is the brightest red star in the arm of the constellation Orion. Now, researchers from China, as well as Chinese astronomers have managed to explain the mysterious fading of this star, which had a fading between October 2019 and February 2020. During this time of fading it was approx. by some researchers that the star's brightness was 2.5 times weaker. Then he recovered.
Everything was led by the National Astronomical Observatories (NAOC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. They collaborated with astronomers and researchers to solve this mystery. The whole thing was scanned by the Weihai Observatory at Shandong University with infrared attenuation and post-attenuation of this giant star that could be seen lost from the brightness of the Earth with the naked eye. There were many hypotheses, but only one was real and very simple, but difficult to deduce from Earth. The result showed that the blurring of the star was caused only by a large, dark spot on its surface, what caused that spot to appear? Not known. It was a simple result, it is still not known what caused the appearance of that dark spot, but it is good that nothing else happened, much worse.
We wish success to researchers and astronomers, observers and all those working on this mission in China to be able to solve as many such problems as possible and to continue their studies and discover new things.
