G'day Aldebaran,

"Does anyone know this star by a different name?"

I'm no astronomer, but I do know a couple of constellations. Betelgeuse is in the constellation of Orion: it's his right shoulder, also known as "Alpha Orionis". There's some other names in "Wikipedia: Betelgeuse". That article has additional information which might be of interest to you; however, I'm in no position to vouch for its accuracy.

I'm unable to help with any of your other questions.

[Aside (cosmetic issues with your post): Using <pre> (block) and <tt> (inline) is absolutely fine for non-ASCII text. Unlike <code> and <c>, you have to manually handle special characters (e.g. write '&' as '&amp;'). In particular, you have a number of autogenerated links which shouldn't be there: please change instances of "[X]" to "&#91;X&#93;".]

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
