"Here we present 4.5 yr, 16-band photometry of Betelgeuse between 2017 and 2021 in the 0.45–13.5 μm wavelength range making use of images taken by the Himawari-8 geostationary meteorological satellite."

Cool stuff, at least for a space nerd like myself.  (And yes, this is what I do for recreational reading these days.  I might need professional help.  ;)  )
