Zooming in on Betelgeuse

This video takes the viewer from the constellation of Orion to the surface of the supergiant star Betelgeuse, which is undergoing unprecedented dimming. That dot appearing at the end of the zoom is a SPHERE image showing Betelgeuse’s visible surface, which has a size close to the orbit of Jupiter.
