I chose to not add this to the numerous Betelgeuse threads that are running. I've watched with interest the dimming and the speculation about the causes of the dimming. Now Betelgeuse is brightening and I am telling myself that I can tell that it's brighter. Am I really seeing a difference or am I just being influenced by reading about the brightening???
I am the last person you'd want to ask for a magnitude estimate on anything. I'm a lifetime member of the AAVSA (American Association of Variable Star AVOIDERS)...
I think I'm just imagining that I can tell a difference.
