So Tabby's Star is even more un explainable than before. So its dimming by as much as 20% and had been getting progressively dimmer since we began observing it 100+ years ago. I love this stuff

My explanation for the shifting down of light from the star is that it is a space ship of some size hurtling directly toward us from that location. The bulk of that ship is interfering with, blocking, the transmission of light from that star.
As the ship gets closer to our star, on a direct line from it, the radius of its bulk increases to shield more of the light. When those emissions dim to nothingness the ship is within our solar system. When portions on earth or our satellites start seeing light from that star again, the ship is near at hand as its straight line journey has ended and it blocks other portions of the sky as it takes up a different position over Earth.
I think that explanation seems just as likely as the current scientific argument that imagines hordes of comets so thick that they are blocking the light from the star.

You better hope your wrong or they could destroy all life on earth considering the size...

Has anybody studied the light curve to see whether there's a message encoded in it?
