>>Some kind of obstruction is blocking our view of Epsilon Aurigae, a star in the constellation Auriga. Its exact nature is unknown — but astronomers say that if you've got a telescope, you could help them figure it out.

That far out in space it could be anything. A passing comet or collection of debree.

Or maybe the lense on the observatory has a dust spec on it.

Get the polish out and then well speak

Here is a thread from the forum with the history and evolution of the star's observations and theories.

As much as I wish it was what we are all hoping it is, it is very doubtful.

It's the monolith, but Arthur C. Clarke got the shape of it wrong. I'm sure the dimensions are pretty much the same.

Still, no idea what that thing is. Could be something we don't know about. Maybe a big planet or a dwarf star or aliens or a big comet or something new.

I'm going with this too.

They have a billion alien meteoroid Starbucks located in there.

hey! i was serious! lol.

ok, how do you figure to build a dyson? all neat and all around at the same time BUT

in a binary system you just can't do it.

fk dude, them puppeteers are a nasty lot. very sneaky.

you have to do 1 side at a time, when it's the outside sun, not the homeworld sun.

you are using it as a power source, enclosing it to gather all power.

i'm sure it would take time to build, so? what's the problem? life evolved with 2 suns, we talkin lots of years for life to re-evolve to 1 sun.

that's my story and i'm stickin to it!

As with any solar system, I'm guessing so long as the sphere is far enough away from either one or both solar bodies, then it ought to be possible. If anything, they hit the celestial jackpot, since they would have the ability to draw on both stars energy instead of just one.

Although I could be wrong.. anyone care to weigh in.

I can't find any information confirming this, but I'm pretty sure that image in the article is an artist's rendition and NOT a real picture.

It certainly looks like an artist drawing. By the way there is a brief mention of this on Linda Howes earthfiles website as well.
