What is the nearest supernova candidate (maybe Betelguese?) to the Earth?

That would be HR8210, discovered sometime in the 90's, but only recently recognised as a type-1 supernova candidate. It's only about 150 ly away, and be the end of us if it went off now.

(something else now to lay awake nights dreading)
HR8210 is IK Pegasi.
link to Alcyone Star Information Tool --->
point to 'click for a single star', then click.
enter 8210 in 'enter HR number' box, then click
more directly --->
point to one of the catalogue names along the left and click
use this information to locate on Fourmilab YourSky Virtual Telescope --->
for example: 21h 24m 7s for Right Ascension, 19°9'29" for Declination , click North 'yes'
point to 'Aim Virtual Telescope' and click
