50% Increase In The Brightness Of Abt Al-Jawza Star; The Nearest Red Giant Is On The Brink Of Death

The Largest Red Giant Star Close To Earth Has Brightened Again After A Dimming Period, Twinkling Twice As Brightly As Before. 

The star Betelgeuse has become 50% brighter than average, creating a historic situation for scientists.

One of the brightest stars in the night sky is exhibiting strange behavior. The blinking speed of this star has doubled, and its brightness has also increased. Scientists can investigate how a celebrity dies by studying the behavior of Abt al-Jawza, the closest red giant star in the universe to Earth.

Based on the previous observation, the star Abt al-Jawza becomes dim and bright in 400-day cycles. The star was dimmed from 2019 to early 2020 due to being covered by a layer of dust, and now it has reached 150% of its average brightness.

The red giant Abt al-Jawza is waiting for the final explosion.

This star’s dimming and brightening period has also been reduced to 200 days. According to these changes, the red giant Abt al-Jawza is now the seventh brightest star in the night sky with three levels of ascension. This star is now visible at the beginning of the Southern Hemisphere sunset. The eclipse will also be visible in the northern hemisphere as the days get shorter.

According to scientists, this star will explode and turn into a supernova between 10,000 and 100,000 years from now. The explosion of Abt Al-Jawza can be visible for several weeks even in the daylight of the Earth, and the intensity of its light will also cast a shadow on the Earth during the night.

It is said that the ancient Egyptians also recorded the explosion of a supernova, which they described as a second sun visible in the sky. Abt al-Jawza is located at a distance of 600 light years from the Earth, and the light from its explosion reaches the Earth after 600 years.
