Q: Can we see the surfaces of stars?

A: Stars are very far away—so far that they appear as mere points of light even through the most powerful telescopes, so we normally can’t see their surfaces. However, star images actually aren’t points, but instead are very tiny disks.

The measurement of light interference is called interferometry, and in recent years astronomers have further developed this science to make crude images of the surfaces of a few stars. Betelgeuse, a bright star in the constellation Orion, is the most famous star for which we have an image of the surface.

This image is possible because Betelgeuse has one of the largest angular diameters of any star. We can see that Betelgeuse has two large, bright spots on its surface. The sun has spots, and astronomers have much evidence that suggests such spots are common on stars, so it isn’t surprising that Betelgeuse has spots too.

Find out more about how scientists measure and observe the surfaces of stars, as creation astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner explains.
