Mystery deepens around 'alien megastructure' star

theyre gonna eat us arent they?

Comparisons of old data from the 1800s shows an 20% dimming in the past 100 years.
Could it be a small black hole or neutron star chowing down?
As the possibilities of what this phenomena is are eliminated we are still left with the stark possibility that we are witnessing the first sights of an extraterrestrial civilization, one possibly capable of construction on an interplanetary scale.

The mystery surrounding a star previously linked to aliens continues to deepen.
The entity known as KIC 8462852 originally made headlines after scientists observed a range of unexplained light fluctuations being emitted from it.
Since the occasional 20 percent drop in light can't be explained by normal means like a passing planet, one theory that has been proposed involves its periodic obstruction from a group of comets.

Another includes heavy construction activity by extraterrestrials who may be building what have been called "alien megastructures."

Now, Louisiana State University's Bradley Schaefer has determined that the star had dimmed by about a fifth in the period between 1890 and 1989 based on an examination of archived photographic plates at Harvard College Observatory.
He has called the fading output "completely unprecedented" for a star of that kind.
This finding largely discounts the comet theory since he estimates it would take 648,000 comets, each about 124 miles wide, to cause the effect.

What happens when they see us seeing them?
what will become of man?
An ingredient in a tasty intergalactic chimichanga?
Sex slaves to the star people?
Quarantine, so we dont screw up the rest of the galaxy?
one wonders.

What do you guys and gals think?
Exciting times in any case.

This has been covered multiple times already, including the new stuff.

Yep, immediately after it was announced. Can't search on phone. There are threads though.
