It's good to be here. What an awesome site. I'm not a great poster and certainly in the past on other forums, my posts seem to administer the kiss of death to any thread to which I contribute. However, that suits my preference to watch and learn.

I'm from Australia - I live in the outback and to date have never encountered a UFO or alien. To my chagrin. You'd think that crystal clear night skies with an absolute minimum of light pollution and absolutely no air traffic would increase the likelihood of my seeing something interesting, however, to date - no luck.

However, if anyone out there has a telescope, would you mind having a quick squizzy at Betelgeuse? Right now, it seems to be pulsating a little more than usual - red and white - with what appears to be "sparks" radiating out from it. It could be some sort of atmospheric distortion but I'd like someone with a little more astro knowhow to take a look if possible. And no, there was nothing in my cup of tea, other than tea!

Thanks and I look forward to contributing.

Cheers - FMB

Hey there,welcome to ATS.I wish i had a telescope,sure would've had a quick squiz for you if i did.We do have some light pollution,even out here in the African bush,from the little township near us,but it's at least not as bad as living in a town or city would've been.I have seen ufo activity out here though,my whole family has.Anyway,nice to meet you.

Welcome, and I hope you enjoy your interactions here, while trying not to stumble over the T&C. I don't have a good telescope and that's why I go to the astronomy sites that have. I have provided a link to an interesting news write-up about Betelgeuse and I hope all will find it interesting.

Here's more Betelgeuse drama:

Welcome to the family. Glad to have you, hope you brought air freshener with.
. Once the place I worked at served beans, cabbage and a chicken dish with green peppers and onions.
. I asked the cooks, "Do you hate us?"
