Strange correlation between Betelgeuse brightness and solar activity.

Recommended Posts

Betelgeuse is estimated to be 642.5 light years away. Why is dynamics of brightness of Betelgeuse so closely aligned with the dynamics of solar activity?

Moreover, in addition to the correlation with 10-13 years solar cycles on the Betelgeuse brightness graph, there are clear 1 year cycles of brightness fluctuations also visible.

Based on this fact, I assume that Betelgeuse, like all other "stars" and "galaxies", are located in the Oort Cloud and reflect sunlight. Here is a link to more arguments in support of this assumption: New model of the Universe.

Annual cyclicity of Betelgeuse brightness fluctuations.

The annual cyclical fluctuations in the brightness of Betelgeuse can be explained by the suggestion that in December the Sun is farther from it, and in June - is closer to it (considering the rotation of the Earth and the Sun as in the animation below, the Earth is larger). Betelgeuse is located in the constellation Orion. Sun in Orion (Orion behind Sun) is in June.

First you need to show a correlation. You need to actually plot the data together and show a statistically significant correlation. Then we can start talking about causes. 

What you've done here is state something you appear to have cherry picked and then made up a story you like. 

It's also always worth noting that correlation is not causation.

Even if they prove correlated, with millions (billions?) of astronomical bodies now being tracked our sun is bound to be in sync with some of them for some of the time by some metric.

The Sun is in strong sync with at least twelve zodiac constellations, for the time of several thousands years, by the metric of the clear annual frequency (1 year - 12 months).

If all you are going to do is make claims then you will be rightly ignored. You need to do as @Klaynos suggested and demonstrate the correlation. That is only the starting point, but without that all you have is an idle speculation.

I agree. It's a first step. Which all it might show is that given a large number of cyclical events some well correlate well.

Nope.Your “new model of the universe” discussion was closed. You don’t get to invoke it here - you used up your chances to support that idea already, and you didn’t.
