Astronomer Finds a Possible Alien ‘Massive Star-Encompassing Structure’

Dr. Jason Wright / Penn State

University Park, Pennsylvania — Dr. Jason Wright, a respected Astronomer and Associate Professor for Penn State, was tasked with a mission to disprove there could be a, “massive star-encompassing structure,” being built in front of the star named Tabby’s Star (Star KIC 8462852).

Kimberly Carter, a member of Dr. Wright’s research team, stated:

“WE WERE ABLE TO RULE OUT SOME THINGS OFF THE BAT. IT’S NOT A BINARY STAR. IT’S NOT A PLANET OR PLANET FORMATION, OR ANY OTHER STRUCTURE WE’VE SEEN BEFORE,”

The star has been dimming at an unprecedented rate of 20 percent. Dr Wright’s team studied the findings from the Kepler Telescope and they were about to rule out possibilities such as an old star.

Dr. Wright stated:

“I had been working on a paper about detecting transiting mega-structures with Kepler. The idea is that if advanced alien civilizations build planet-sized mega-structures; solar panels, ring worlds, telescopes, beacons, whatever; Kepler might be able to distinguish them from planets.”

He and his team are continuing to study this never before seen “alien” anomaly. They will share any further findings as they are discovered.
