Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse!
Red supergiant stars such as Betelgeuse normally end their lives in supernovas, which would be seriously cool to see. We’d be quite safe here, at a good enough distance, but we’d be able to see the explosion as it happened during the day, and it’d be months before it dimmed.
