If it's a bright orange object "close" to the left star on Orion's belt, Betelgeuse does seem like the best possible explanation. The guy on the
video suggests that the object is faint unless under the Ir, though, which doesn't fit as well.
Trouble is that the video kind of sucks, and it doesn't do a very good job of showing the object in relation to other nearby stars.
It's also worth noting that Betelgeuse has been expanding in size steadily since astronomic observations began, and there is even a remote
possibility that it could go supernova during humanity's time on earth - offering us probably the single most unique and fantastic light show ever to
be witnessed by mankind. But that's just an outside chance...
Anyways, where's the mystery?
Go outside tonight and look for yourselves. I watch the stars almost every night, and I haven't seen anything unusual near Orion. Just the same
beautiful stars i see every night. I don't have an IR camera, but if it's at all visible to the naked eye it seems like I would have seen it. I
Besides, this would be big news among amateur astronomers if it were true. I haven't heard anything.
Or maybe everyone with a telescope is in on the conspiracy, right?
Please... Nibiru is such hooey. Anyone read "Nemesis" by Isaac Asimov?
