  1. jbelme1

    Great news.

  2. Ogreth Anon

    It’s boutsa splode!

  3. David Wall

    I’m smarter every day solely because of Anton.

  4. Dolly Dupee

    Not all stars die a supernova some of them just slowly just fizzle until there’s nothing left

  5. jaspal raina

    If like the sun & planets, the galactic contents r also in a gravitational balance could we postulate the changes in the position of all nearby bodies if any star goes supernova🤔

  6. Ralph Walters

    The plot reveals a brightening rate higher than the dimming. Mysterious.

    What was the conclusion made by the Advanced LIGO team of the detected gravity wave anomaly ?

  7. Chris Christopherous

    Thanks wonderful person😊

  8. Handlebar Fox

    “…it was something much cooler” Ouch, I see what you did there!

  9. Snippy Cutwell

    Or, it could be a really big alien waving a really huge hat…

  10. Claus

    Seems logical, wasen’t it just a few years back, our own sun had a huge sun spot taking up like 40% of the surface, correct me if i’m wrong.

  11. garrison g

    Although I have no doubt there are extraterrestrial civilizations out there doing amazing things, I would find it difficult to believe this dimming is caused by a Dyson sphere just because of its sheer size. That being said I would have no idea what their capabilities would be. But a Dyson sphere on this scale would seem to be an impossible task.

  12. Helder Almeida

    Q: Anton on other video about black holes, my question is are black holes a sphere or just flat and black?

  13. Shirley Munro

    Starspot? That cant be good. So magnetic fields from the sunspot polarizing the magnetic domains of metals in the dust so it alters the angle of photons?

  14. William Cox

    Two stars for the price of one? What a deal!

  15. Jeremy Christopher

    That’s called a micronova

  16. M L R

    is it possible B’ consumed something? what causes Spot cycles in such a huge star?

  17. Mr Rishi The Cookie

    Has beatelguese tried accutane for their spots?

  18. manco82

    Hello wonderful Anton.

  19. Buxees Singh

    Are Ford Prefect and Zaphod Beeblebrox OK with this? :-)

  20. Bruce Gelman

    So thats why I have those dark floaters in my eyes.Thanks

  21. Mick Taylor

    I’m going to have to reread Velikovsky again to be sure but I think this sounds very much like an idea he proposed.

  22. Robo Dobo

    That picture with the big spot reminds me of the picture they claim is a black hole

  23. Vamshi Kanamarlapudi

    Could a planet be a reason for such dimming?

  24. Socks With Sandals

    I guess Betelgeuse must turn slowly to avoid centrifuging itself apart.
    Staggering that a sunspot can be the size of our inner solar system.

  25. Michael Wodyka

    The spot was caused when space Hitler’s space final solution involved this star and a whole bunch of space train cattlecars running right into it.

  26. Krispy Fried Dinosaur

    Hello wonderful Anton

  27. Roland Lee

    Oh come on! Big Boom 2020!

  28. rollmeister

    I just wanna see it go boom

  29. Karla Kirkpatrick

    A poster would be nice of the wonderful image

  30. a Fili and some joe

    Could this also possibly explain the unusual dimming of Tabby’s star?

  31. DaddyAl37

    My favorite star.


    Legend has it If you say Betelgeuse 3 times the sun will go supernova.

  33. matej lom

    Could it be the same with HD 139139 ?

  34. Stanimir Ivanov

    I want supernova!

  35. Rik

    Please wear a Wonderful Person T-shirt in your videos.

  36. Mikey D

    Maybe was just a little Gassy 💨

  37. Anthony Hutchins

    Thinking about how big that star is blows my mind

  38. djmikeymack

    Alien mothership was just passing by gulping up some fuel

  39. Rex Grande

    I still suspect it was planet 9 (Nibiru) getting in the way.

  40. Victor Davis

    I thought if two stars merge it would cause a supernova

  41. Squirrel Gray

    Careful not to say it 3 times in a row ;)

  42. AthomSmasher

    It’s getting interesting!

  43. Mobel Gamer

    I want to know, how space probes travels in space?

  44. Marc’s Fx

    They opened the door and now closed 😉😊

  45. Xray Legends

    Hello wonderful anton this is the best person.

  46. p0l6rb36r

    When’s the Crossing, Anton? It’s gotta be close.

  47. Wahab Jaleel

    Thanks for the update 👍

  48. The Brain Reigns

    Thanks Again partner.

  49. independent voter

    Great video. Lovely wonderful person.

  50. Sora Dragneel

    damn this makes my brain tremble.

  51. Glenn Wouda

    mmm Bettle Juice… tasty
    I still think Aliens is the best explanation!

  52. Flickable Bean

    Hey hey, somebody got a haircut 😉👍

  53. Fransisco Zip

    If the early phase of going nova was an expected explosion blowing off the outer layer…the orb had a week blew out a wall and a horn shaped cloud vented…moistly twords us.. A coldish spot …well might have not collapsed at the get go…causing a uneven zone/ area.. Ok wonderfull person what do we expect to see if bealtejuice blows?

  54. Conspiracy Theory

    Anton it’s fine ur doing a video on Betelgeuse just don’t say it three times in a row.

  55. Jim Thompson

    As always, a great show.

  56. Gregor Hoss

    Betelgeuse, the glowing potatoe :-) .

  57. Isaac Kappy 777

    You would be a great guest on coast to coast am with George norie . amazing

  58. LudwigVaanArthans

    The thumbnail looked like the doge meme

  59. Sam Starr

    Micronova!!!! With luv from SuspiciousObservers

  60. Stephen Fritz

    I ran out of Coca Cola. But I just watched Beetlejuice from Howard Stern. Does this balance out?

  61. lost and confused

    Someone accidentally pulled the plug out, then managed to plug it back in before it completely went out.

  62. GamingMOFO

    This video is sponsored by Coke(Betelgeuse flavor) 💖

  63. A

    This year is a history
    Next year is a mystery-
    We really don’t know what will happen next.

  64. David Combs

    Makes me feel inteleget!!

  65. S Clair

    Reminds me of the Illusive Mans star in Mass Effect

  66. TheZombieKiller06

    I love your smile at the end of videos

  67. Nebarus

    Always looking forward to learning something new about the universe through wonderful Antons videos ;)

  68. Carl DiFrancesco

    It’s a space fleet headed our way!🤯🤦‍♂️😱

  69. Shane aguilar

    Hello wonderful person this is anton😅🖐

  70. WR10

    Keep up the hard work Anton, sir!
    You’re a wonderful teacher and science communicator. I appreciate your work!

  71. Timothy Mostad

    I hope that the James Webb observatory can answer questions like this one.

  72. Morty

    After like 9 episodes, now we know the full story of Betelgeuse! What an amazing journey! Science moves fast.

  73. June Burton

    I’ll he looking forward to find out more in a year from now

  74. walentaz

    Just explode ffs 😂

  77. Charles Achurch

    Great presentation thanks for keeping me informed.

  78. Sammy Smith

    Cough cough… Dyson’s sphere… Cough

  79. zee zam

    Betelgeuse: dims down

    2020: nice, now leta change things up

  80. Henrik

    I’m a very frequent viewer. Love your videos. They are awesome! Wish you would upload them to the Nebula streaming service as well.
    Keep doing what you’re doing!


    “It was something much cooler”, I know what you did there. Hahahaha! Sun spots, cooler, nice one Anton. ;)

  82. Colonel Graff

    6:00 ~Enjoy Coke~

  83. Magic Myco

    Nice cut Anton, even tho same shirt, lol, oh smashing video!

  84. maxdoom

    Catastrophic,Explosion is in order I’d hope.

  85. Silas Dense

    This is why I look forward to watching your (well done) video’s.
    Can’t wait to see the results from next years observations.
    Thanks again Anton.
    You’re awesome!!

  86. Chilledfish

    Won’t a star merger shorten the life of the new star due to the increase of pressure at the core?

  87. Bill Hallett

    I’m so glad you don’t use background music.

  88. Just Thinkin

    It’s actually the main light in an interstellar bar. Bars always turn their lights down at night.

  89. Sourojeet Dasgupta

    All I want is it to explode 643 years before I die…..

    Wait what….

  90. TwinShards

    “It was something much cooler” PUN INTENDED.

  91. Laura Chapple

    How was Betelguese this year? It feels like a decade ago.

  92. Huan hound of the vailino

    As spectacular as it would be I don’t want to see it go supernova its part of my favourite constilation

  93. Kartez Drake

    Its advance aliens technology. They travel through stars and the byproduct is a star spot. Think wormholes connected with stars. 🤷🏿‍♂️

  94. Veroosh Tarot & Astrology

    Stop saying beatlegeuce cuz hes going to come out jk

  95. Aidan Low

    Nah this is just the government trying to hide alien life lol jk

  96. EDH Yang

    Anton: Hi wonderful person.

    Me: thanks.

  97. Chris_Wooden_Eye

    Return to Betelgeuse
    Sounds like a movie

  98. The Exoplanets Channel

    I would have preferred to see the star exploding :(

    Provided it doesn’t endagers any friendly alien civilization ^^

  99. tim weatherill

    Anton, you must be the most hard-working YouTube star of all. I find it amazing that you can so diligently read all these abstracts, write your scripts and prepare a little visual entertainment/illustrations for us on what seems to be a daily basis. Do you ever rest? Take a holiday? Well in any case, I’d like to thank you for your good work keeping us informed about what’s up in the field of Astronomy (generally).

  100. alexanderalexandrou

    How does he know every time that I’m a wonderful person? It’s unnerving.
