Betelgeuse Supernova!

Nice video, but hyper over stated. From Forbes article recounting

"Not only will Betelgeuse be visible during the day, but it will rival the
Moon for the second-brightest object in the sky. Some models 'only' have
Betelgeuse getting as bright as a thick crescent moon, while others will
see it rival the entire full moon. It will conceivably be the brightest
object in the night sky for more than a year until it finally fades away
to a dimmer state."

So no, we will not have a second sun, it will probably appear like the
ghostly moon that we can see during morning and afternoon hours when
moon the phases are: waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, waning
gibbous, last quarter, and waning crescent.
