One of the most talked about topics in astronomy this year after 100 years is the Beetle’s star, known as the Red Giant in Orion. Abraham Michelson and Francis Gladheim, the first scholars to study the star’s recent history, first used the Mount Wilson Observatory in 1920 to measure the angular diameter of the star.
This discovery was an important astronomical milestone at the time, as we were only able to measure the angular diameter of the Sun. But they did not really know that the value is about 4 times the true angular diameter. For this reason, the Beetlejus concluded that the distance from our Earth is about 120 light-years. In fact, this observation misled astronomy.
What do we really know about this star now? We now know that this star is a red giant star. But there is a situation where scholars cannot calculate the exact diameter of this star. It is generally said that the end of this star will end in a second type of supernova explosion.
According to the modern stellar classification, the Beetles are oscillating between M1 and M2Ⅰa-Ⅰab. This is now called a really variable star. This unusual behavior of the star is still a problem for astronomers, who have already estimated that about 10,000 times as much of our Sun’s mass decays as it exists here.
Analyzing this, they initially discovered that the star’s orbit was about 6 times the diameter of the star’s orbit, and two years later it stated that the region would expand further. But the way matter is scattered, they claim that it does not spread evenly. They further stated that it extends in the form of a nebula and has observed a range of about 60 billion kilometers.
Tests conducted in 2016 revealed that the average rotational speed of a star is 150 times larger than we know it to be. Because of this they concluded that the expansion of the star was now over, explaining the principle of angular motion. Further, the magnification of the star changed significantly during this time.
Also, research scientist Dr. Thavisha Dharmawardena said that 50 – 70 percent of the star’s surface is dark, which causes a change in the star’s temperature, which is still problematic. But now a team of researchers has come up with a different idea using images taken from the Hubble Space Telescope to illustrate the changing cycle of 420 days.
According to it, the matter leaving the star travels to the star’s atmosphere and condenses, creating a barrier for its light to reach. The team believes that this is due to the fact that the light curve of the star Beteljus looks different. Experts estimate that the star will explode permanently in the next 100,000 years.
