Context. Aims. We present spatially resolved high-spectral resolution K-band observations of the red supergiant Betelgeuse (α Ori) using AMBER at the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI). Our aim is to probe inhomogeneous structures in the dynamical atmosphere of Betelgeuse. Methods. Betelgeuse was observed in the wavelength range between 2.28 and 2.31� m with VLTI/AMBER using baselines of 16, 32, and 48 m. The spectral resolutions of 4800‐12000 allow us to study inhomogeneities seen in… Expand
