KIC 8462852, otherwise known as Tabby's Star, is now once again making headlines as scientists are revealing that it has dimmed once again. The F-type star in the constellation Cygnus, which is about 1,280 light-years away, first came into the scientific limelight after astronomers revealed to the public ...
In September of 2015, the star KIC 8462852 (aka. Tabby's Star) captured the world's attention when it was found to be experiencing a mysterious drop in brightness. In the years since then, multiple studies have been conducted that have tried to offer a natural explanation for this behavior – and even an ...

The team of astrophysicists studying KIC 8462852, more well known as Tabby's star, has reported that the star recently dimmed again, and did so quite dramatically. The group, led by LSU's Tabby Boyajian who discovered the odd behavior of the star back in 2015, has been documenting their findings on ...
Though KIC 8462852, also known as Tabby's star, is probably not host to an alien megastructure like a Dyson Sphere or an orbiting solar panel array, it's pattern of brightening and dimming is still puzzling astronomers. We now know that space dust is probably the culprit, but there's something strange ...
The vagaries of KIC 8462852, the star better known as "Tabby's star" in honor of Boyajian, have been the subject of scientific sleuthing for years. In 2015, researchers led by Boyajian reported that the Kepler space telescope had captured a completely new phenomenon at Tabby's star. At irregular intervals ...
Planets and asteroids orbit like clockwork. Stars steadily change over the eons as they burn through their different types of fuels. So when KIC 8462852 turned up in astronomical observations 'flashing' in an unpredictable, erratic way — eyebrows were raised. It didn't seem to fit any known stellar behaviour.

Named KIC 8462852, the star doesn't act like any star we've ever seen before. Its light fluctuations are extreme, dimming by up to 20 percent at times. And its dips don't seem to repeat in a predictable way. That means something really big and irregular is passing in front of this star, leading scientists to ...
KIC 8462852, or "Tabby's Star," named after Tabetha Boyajian, the researcher at Louisiana State University (USA) who is leading its study, is a medium sized star, some 50 percent bigger than the sun, and 1,000 degrees hotter, at a distance of around 1000 light years. However, its brightness rises and falls ...
As an exception to this, in further study of Tabby's Star, the mysterious dimming star KIC 8462852, it was revealed that the cause of the dimming effect was most likely due to a natural phenomenon, and it could be ruled out that the strange effect was caused by an alien megastructure or some artificial ...
The most mysterious star in the universe just lost some of its cachet after scientists decided that the anomalies observed in Tabbys Star are likely not caused by a gigantic alien artifact orbiting the star and intermittently blocking its light. Tabbys Star is really named KIC 8462852, but thankfully it was ...
Just this month, a different team of researchers reported using telescopic observations to rule out the presence of an alien megastructure around a strangely dimming star known as KIC 8462852, or Boyajian's Star. Yet another long-lasting technosignature could be the presence of radioactive compounds ...
Speculation about extraterrestrials seems to be everywhere these days. Last week it was “Tabby's Star” (more officially known as KIC 8462852), whose mysterious dimming and brightening, according to the latest analysis, is likely due to dust blocking different wavelengths of light rather than “alien ...
Research into what astronomers have called "the most mysterious star in the universe" has signaled "a new era of astronomy" for humanity, according to Louisiana State University.

Why was KIC 8462852 acting this way? Scientists didn't know. It couldn't be explained by conventional causes, like orbiting planets. Aliens were one theory, because of course they were. At some point, the theory that the dips might be caused by gigantic infrastructures built by an intelligent alien civilization ...
A study conducted by more than 200 researchers including Lousiana State University astronomer Tabetha Boyajian has ruled out the possibility of KIC 8462852 being obscured by an alien megastructure as the cause of its fluctuating brightness. In a report by Phys.org, Joel Ranck of the Pennsylvania State ...
The star is nicknamed Tabby's Star after Tabetha Boyajian, an astronomer at Louisiana State University who has led its study, and formally known as KIC 8462852 because the first truly detailed observations of it came from NASA's Kepler Space Telescope. That instrument is designed to hunt exoplanets by ...
When astronomers observe cosmic events that defy immediate explanation, a knee-jerk public response often follows chalking it up to alien beings, on alien worlds, doing alien stuff. This dynamic was on full display back in 2015, when an obscure star named KIC 8462852 was thrust into the spotlight after ...

She'd been working all night, but Boyajian had been waiting for this moment for four years. By 5 a.m., data from the telescopes in Maui confirmed what the ones in Tenerife had already said: The star formally known as KIC 8462852, now called "Tabby's Star," had started to dim again. Continue reading.
