Can we see the surface of a star - other than our Sun???

This an article about a star dying, and shows several images of it varying in size that show the actual surface of a star!
"We have essentially created an animation of a pulsating star using real images," stated Lacour. "Our observations show that the pulsation is not only radial, but comes with inhomogeneities, like the giant hotspot that appeared at minimum radius."
