Today is very important. On December 13, 1920, Albert Michelson uses Francis G. Pease’s interferometer to measure the diameter of a star – Betelgeuse. This is the first time a star’s diameter is measured, aside from our own Sun. Of course, the star made me think of one of my favorite movies, Beetlejuice. I’m a big Winona Ryder and Geena Davis fan. Some interesting facts about Betelgeuse the star — in fluctuates in brightness and is 1,000 times brighter than our Sun. Interesting fact about Beetlejuice the movie – Sammy Davis, Jr. was Tim Burton’s first choice to play Beetlejuice.
