It had all gone quiet recently with the star being watched by NASA and some of the worlds top scientists and astronomers, that is until it set a new record by going REALLY dark, in fact darker then EVER before! Could it be true and that this star really is proof of advanced alien technology? After all, this star called Tabby’s Star, is now already nicknamed the ‘Alien Megastructure’ Star!
The brightness of a star obviously naturally changes throughout its life cycle, but that event takes a VERY VERY long time and us little humans are nothing but a tiny dot on the cosmic timeline. When we see a star’s brightness change, it’s an indication something of cosmological significance is happening. Astronomers have had a hard time figuring out what, exactly, is happening to KIC 8462852. You may know it as Tabby’s Star, or the “Alien Megastructure Star.” It’s entered another record-setting dimming cycle of unknown cause.
Many Astronomers are very keen to watch for dips in brightness from distant stars because we’ve learned this is an excellent way to spot exoplanets, or planets that orbit stars other than our own Sun. The clever Kepler space observatory has discovered thousands of exoplanets this way. Tabby’s Star first gained fame thanks to Kepler observations that showed a big drop in brightness, it was so big in fact that it couldn’t have been a planet. Its overall brightness dipped by several percent and stayed like that for several days. The dimming events have continued happening, and the intervals are seemingly random and not happening in a set routine or manner.
At the early stages of this fantastic yet strange discovery, many top scientists made the serious suggestion that Tabby’s Star (named after original study author Tabetha Boyajian – pictured above!) could be exhibiting such strange behaviors because aliens are building giant space platforms around it, potentially for energy purposes. Hence it then became the “Alien Megastructure Star.”
Scientists have continued monitoring the star, which is 50 percent larger than the sun and about 1,200 light years away, hoping to figure out what’s causing the dips in brightness. Some have also sought to disprove the alien hypothesis. Boyajian herself published a study early this year that claimed the best explanation for KIC 8462852 is not aliens but a giant dust cloud. But, as most of us know, the scientists will always try and figure out if something is a natural event happening, before looking at the possibilities of it being the work of aliens.
Even though the ‘aliens’ theory appears to be out (according to the mainstream media!) KIC 8462852 is still an incredibly fascinating object, one which has left the worlds leading scientists scratching their confused heads. Just over the last week it entered another far more extreme dimming cycle, and it’s a big one. According to Boyajian, this is the largest dip since the star first popped up in Kepler data back in 2013 (with observations from 2011). But what could be causing this bizarre event?
Starting back on March 16th 2018, the star’s brightness dipped far below normal. Then on March 22, it was back up. As of March 26, the brightness was down again in a big way. It’s down at least 5 percent and as much as 10 percent. The team is continuing its observations to see how low Tabby’s Star can go. The original Kepler data showed a 22 percent drop, so we might still have a way to go.
Even if this is not some kind of alien megastructure such as a ‘Dyson Sphere’ (incredibly advanced technology to drain a star off it’s energy resource!) this is still incredibly strange. Sadly the truth of the matter is, even if the elite know that this is all down to the work of advanced ET’s, they would never tell us – with the knowledge of alien life, the elite will be scared of losing the power and control!

Let’s be honest with ourselves, the Universe is crammed full of life, some of which will be far more advance than what we could ever imagine! Just imagine a civilization with millions if not BILLIONS of years in advanced technology over us – anything could be possible!
We will keep you updated on this! Perhaps it’s just space swamp gas!
