    Larry Lightfoot didn’t show up

  3. Tofiu Games

    Can proxima centauri b have a moon ? which effects a moon might cause in proxima centauri b?

  4. GlitterJuice

    Candyman, Candyman, Betegeuse

  5. SexDrugsNpostprod

    very sad I wanted it to go boom

  6. Stephen Sherry

    My favorite science, love your videos a LOT 😄☄💖

  7. Satori Mystic

    How many days, months, years ago did this dimming happen? What’s the difference between when it happened, and when we Saw it happen? 🤔

  8. Peter Houle

    What does Paul McCartney drink for breakfast?
    Beatle Juice.

  9. jerry helton

    you forgot to put the video link

  10. Chris_Wooden_Eye

    U know I don’t like that it’s closer than we thought.
    And hold a sec…I thought Betelgeuse was not very old less than 10 million years old now Anton says it’s an old star

  11. Trevor Manns

    well damn

  12. khalilisation

    great man – i love your chanel

  13. Tony Furiato

    Anton Petrov Someone with your Knowledge should have known that Betelgeuse before 1988 was Never referred to as “Beetlejuice”.

    Love your channel anyway! Thumbs Up!

  14. DUARTE

    Awesome intro. 👍👍

  15. TheWeeaboo

    Makes me wonder if any other civilisations ever noticed this phenomenon and studied it. Or might still do ! Maybe 200 years from now some other civilisation further away will notice it. :d

    We could have many common grounds with aliens like this assuming the distances don’t vary too much.

  16. Olmost Gudinaf

    It wasn’t a dust cloud. Or a giant star spot. It was a CME in roughly our direction, cooling down and dimming star along the way, until it moved out of the direct line of sight. You’ve read it here first.

  17. The Cosmos Imager

    Another Great Video Anton. Betelguese is Indeed The Closest Supernova Candidates. Iam Pretty sure It Will Blow in 100,000 years and Looks Like we Estimated That Betelguese Is as Big as Jupiters Orbit But it’s Not even Close To That.

  18. Mr. Pete Channel needs 90

    Left Beetlejuice looks squashed a bit.

  19. Christina miller

    I just love this channel. I had the worst day, but I log in and there you are… hello wonderful person! Plus I learn really neat stuff. Thanks so much Anton. ❤️

  20. Joseph Knurek

    we might have been wrong about alot of things about betelguese..and we still are. lol but thanks for the latest version.

  21. Γιάννης Σκανδύλας

    Out of topic, sort of, does Betelgeuse have any planets in orbit?

  22. salelltd

    Maybe the first dimming was a really massive planet and after some time it collided with the star and caused the starquake?

  23. Joe Arnold

    We got thrown off by all the C-beams

  24. zee zam

    I said it three times, I’m typing this comment on Satan’s laptop.
    He is also a cool guy

  25. Bob Jenkins

    No Views?

  26. khalilisation

    al jawza means twin, beit al jawza means the house of the twin/s…orion is al jabbar or the mighty
    for me it looks as if in the east that star belongs to the constellation of gemini

  27. Huan hound of the vailino

    It is closer so was hoping you would do video on this

  28. Fredi Tika

    Did the star’s mass estimate change?

  29. jeanette bowen

    Hahaha! It has already gone supernova. We will not see it till 2037.

  30. foze mohammed

    Hello!!! From Oromia

  31. Pup314

    Betelguese had is own version of Corona Virus.

  32. dylan junior

    Dude I preyed to every God known hoping I could see it blow I hope they are all wrong

  33. DJ k

    You da best.!

  34. MIDBC1

    It would be neat to know how close the Sun solar sun spot cycles are to other stars and if it has any influences between galaxies that are closer together

  35. Kate Ford

    You are the best thankyou 👀🌍♥️

  36. McPhazer

    Seems like a massive margin of error how is that even possible

  37. Pat Konelectric

    What’s going on? ALIENS 👽

  38. Comrade Maethor

    Honestly, I’m expecting Betelgeuse to not even be a star. I don’t know what else it could be, but every month our understanding of it changes drastically.

  39. DJ Cudworth

    1:40 what do mean unfortunate?

  40. Java Man

    Anton, can you find something interesting about O type stars? They are the largest and brightest main sequence stars, but I never hear about them.

  41. Probably Not my name

    Never start with a drunken uncle joke.

  42. Gregg Weber

    What if there are at least two actions inside the star of different frequencies so as to produce a beat frequency, or if three a more chaotic looking output?

  43. Panos Triantaphillou

    964 AD is rather medieval .. :)

  44. Craig Carr

    What does this mean for all our other size / distance calculations?

  45. nighthawkofdoom

    I love you Anton XXX Thank you for your fabulous work.

  46. Mugly Mae

    Aw it just started its new solar cycle too

  47. Mr R to the B

    Just go supernova already!

  48. Vickon Targaryen

    I Love cheesy notes 😂👍🏼

  49. MrTigg

    HAHAHA Very Cheesy there Anton! LOL

  50. Skalgar

    They learned they are clueless. I wonder what addhoc theory they will come up with.

  51. Peter

    Haha nice start 😆

  52. ChristophersMum

    Very interesting content…but …no boom💥

  53. Jonathan Eves

    Anton. Your site is one of my Astronomical favourites along with Suspicious0bservers You’re very informative and seem like a good soul. I’m so happy you found somewhere to live. May you Live Long and Prosper! Greetings from Liverpool.

  54. Jason TheConner


  55. Howard Koolman

    Be interesting to know what Gaia’s best estimate (with tolerance) is for its distance. I’m guessing it’s too far and variable to get a more precise value using Parallax.

  56. Alex Bowman

    There’s a star in Perseus with the Arabic name Algol or ghoul in English. It’s an eclipsing binary the most variable star visible to us and it’s thought that Arabic astronomers knew it was variable but to say so would have been perhaps a capital offence so they hinted at it in it’s name.

  57. Peter Rabbit

    Within most of this audience’s lifetimes, we should be able to image Betelgeuse as clearly as that artist’s rendition at 5:30 .

  58. Earth Planet

    27k more subs in two months!?!?!

  59. AJ Nester

    Great open! 🖖🤣

  60. cherry nuka cola

    could you make a video on euclidian consortium – measuring devices of dark e and dark
    and the lisa interferometer – measuring of gravitational waves in space
    both projects are planned for near future

  61. Munkee Bone

    Anton, you mentioned renaming your channel a while back? Any thoughts on that lately?

    “Space Doubt”? (sounds like “spaced out” ^:^)

  62. kind kender

    I love the exit music…

  63. Tekno Statik

    Anton, you clown! I loled at 1964. 😂

  64. Lori DaFuque

    Be cheesy. You are awesome, Anton. My hub and I really enjoy your episodes and are so glad to hear you have gotten settled in your new place <3 Much Love from Arizona, U.S.

  65. C-S featured

    We all love our friend Big Beetle Juice.

  66. Alfred Sutton

    Thank you for the report, Anton.
    Very interesting.

  67. Dave Hebert

    Man, everyone knows it was a HUGE Dyson Sphere chock full of aliens that passed in front of the star! :D

  68. life after death

    “bueterugueeesu~ nande?”

  69. Vincent Cleaver

    I’m here for the cheese…
    Hello, wonderful Anton!

  70. Silas Dense

    Thank you for another amazingly interesting video.
    Greatly appreciated.

  71. Geno Stellar

    It always amazes me how much information we’re able to get from something as simple as a distant star dimming for a little bit.

  72. Kaarli Makela

    I used to draw star quakes all the time when I was a kid … with my Deluxe Spirograph set!
    There was a sound that set off the quake? I want to hear it … Music of the Spheres!

  73. Człowiek Lajk

    Intro made me chuckle 😂 oi u cheeky wankah

  74. Salt Daemon

    Some one should program in some sandworms on Saturn… just sayin’.

  75. NetTubeUser

    When I watch this video … I definitely need another Belgian *Beltegeuse beer* _(No, I’m from Belgium)._ Thank you for that, Anton!!
    … *CHEERS ANYWAY!* 🥴🍺> !! <🍺🥴


    Great video as always, especially when it comes to the explanation of papers, thanks Anton, love from Iraq

  77. Traun7771

    Thanks for your videos, Anton, you bring so much interesting astronomical, science news, I wouldn’t know them otherwise, Thanks!

  78. Tommy Lee

    ‘On the cheesy note…’ love it! Carry on….as you were

  79. Patrick Plevak

    10 minutes early gang

  80. Rogue-Spear

    Yes! Another Petrov video!!!!

  81. Štaywalker 00

    Guess I’m here first. Might as well tell you i love your videos

  82. cherry nuka cola

    about a year ahead betelgeuese is 10 % of its predicted size while being 6,4 lyght years away

  83. XMorbidKiX

    That intro! LOL I love you, Anton

  84. Ray Ceeya

    DUDE! That intro was hilarious. 👍👍👍

  85. Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar

    La Lloorna three times

  86. MrBigNoodle

    That camera quality though.

  87. vadermask//mass retaliati

    Your show is way better than anything on old-fashioned television! No stupid, loud background music or annoying fake suspenseful breaks! Keep up the great work! Cheers, from Detroit!

  88. Alex Bowman

    Anton the oldest provable human concept is the constellation Taurus. There’s a 11,000 year old French cave painting of the Pleiades with a bull painted underneath with the Hyades and Caster and Pollux to the left. The Pleiades are painted so accurately that they can date the painting.

  89. pillmuncher67

    I already liked Betelgeuse before it was cool!

  90. Tammy McCaslin

    I rarely laugh out loud at something I’m watching, but that first joke had me cackling.

  91. THE SUZZ

    whoever made up the constellations had an awesome imagination. lol. like seriously. a few stars in a line if sorts with a few other starts randomly around it becomes a person or a fish or w.e. lol

  92. HPontara1

    Anton…Anton…Anton…OH WAIT

  93. THE SUZZ

    I was litterly begging beetlejuice to go boom. back when it was being weird. lol. I would love to see it go supernova. a big big boom would b awesome. lol. but btw that intro was awesome!!!!

  94. Disciple Toki

    Mmm Beatlejuice, crunchy and refreshing.

  95. Mo Pippenger

    Anton Petrov
    Anton Petrov
    Anton Petrov
    Yay! A video!

  96. Wyrm dy Trawwlr

    Ok but is it going to explode?

    Edit: Ok no damn

  97. DemoGorgonZola

    Betelgeuse ends up smaller… well, he did have his head shrunk in the movie. :)

  98. Brain Blocking

    Hold my Geuse, so one of the most studied stars out there and we made a small error of 25% relating to its distance?… Ty Anton for showing us again we don’t know much :) great video as usual!

  99. inesis

    Even Betelgeuse going supernova was cancelled due to the pandemic of covid-19…

  100. Xiomin Minecraft

    VY Canis Majoris seeing a change to be recalculated to be bigger:
    *Okay, my turn.*
