Astronomers have uncovered new unusual flashing “stars aliens”
MOSCOW, 5 Dec — RIA Novosti. “Star alien” KIC 8462852 in the constellation Cygnus is not only mysteriously fades with time, but periodic increases in brightness that casts doubt on almost all “natural” explanation of her “flashing”, say planetary scientists in an article posted in the electronic library arXiv.org.
“Until now we thought that the brightness of the stars varies only in one direction — in other words, we thought it only dims. The fact that she really sometimes becomes more striking after periods of tarnishing, not compatible with most of current hypotheses,” said Joshua Simon (Joshua Simon) from Carnegie institution for science in Pasadena (USA).
In mid-October 2015 Tabetha, Boyajian (Tabetha Boyajian) from Yale University and her colleagues spoke about unusual fluctuations in the brightness of the star KIC 8462852 in the constellation of Cygnus, which may indicate the presence in the vicinity of the so-called Dyson sphere created by the evolved civilization of aliens.
Initially, scientists assumed that such “blink” of a star could be caused by a swarm of comets closed it the light from observers on Earth, but in January 2016 the American astronomer Bradley Schaefer found that the brightness of KIC 8462852 inexplicably fell by 0.16 magnitudes over the last century that questioned this theory.
Initially, a number of skeptics have tried to deny the fact tarnishing KIC 8462852 in the short and long term, but subsequently, scientists working with a telescope “Kepler”, and Russian astronomers from the Pulkovo Observatory confirmed that the brightness of the star fall in the past.
