Beetle Juice

Betelgeuse captured by ALMA
Our first picture of a star. Up till now a star was only a pinprick of light. This image was captured by ALMA, which is more of a radio telescope, so this image was generated from a bunch of bits using mystical software written by gnomes. Still pretty cool. ESO story here.

ALMA is a big, as in billions big, project. I've posted about it before.
