Album Notes
Classified as a red supergiant of spectral type M1-2, Betelgeuse is one of the most luminous stars visible to the naked eye. If Betelgeuse were at the centre of the Solar System, its surface would extend past the asteroid belt, wholly engulfing the orbits of Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. Calculations of its mass range from slightly under ten to a little over twenty times that of the Sun. It is calculated to be 640 light-years away, yielding an absolute magnitude of about −6. Less than 10 million years old, Betelgeuse has evolved rapidly because of its high mass. Having been ejected from its birthplace in the Orion OB1 Association—which includes the stars in Orion's Belt—this runaway star has been observed moving through the interstellar medium at a speed of 30 km/s, creating a bow shock over 4 light-years wide. Currently in a late stage of stellar evolution, the supergiant is expected to explode as a supernova within the next million years.

Proximity effect!
An amazing wall of electronic sound and static that is somehow still very musical. Can imagine passing the star and then drifting off into space again.
