But what was the 10th star, I wondered. Is it the "so-called tenth planet, Planet X? Or was it a star that would represent the tenth body in, around, or entering the solar system? I began looking up possibilities on the internet. I was already somewhat versed in Astronomy, having taken some college courses and flirting with the idea of a degree in the field (really ever since my first telescope at age 9). I speculated that it could be the 10th furthest star from our solar system. But should it include the Sun or not include the Sun? I speculated that it could be the 10th brightest star in magnitude. Betelgeuse is the 10th brightest star to us here on Earth. It is a red giant in the constellation of Orion. There has been some discussion in more recent times about this immense star on the internet: it is eventually due to explode/go Supernova, some say within a couple of thousand years due to its age, if it has not done so already. When it does it will take 400-600 years for the light to travel this way. Many scientists believe that the star is too distant to affect us here on Earth in the event of a supernova.
Interestingly, a group, supposedly channeling from the sixth dimension through a Ouija board, was told that a star would go supernova and they gave a clue that this star makes up the foot of Orion. Orion of course has two feet. One is Rigel and the other is Saiph.
