So what ever happened with the supposed "Mega-structure" astronomers theorized about the star known as KIC 8462852? Any updates on this?
Anything you guys have..
From what I've read KIC 8462852 seems to be a main sequence star that is similar in size to the sun, so earth-like planets are completely plausible. It's impossible to put any likelihood number on the Alien question at the moment because we simply don't know enough. But we will know it soon enough if it's Aliens.
The dimming of the star's light is not caused by comets. So scientists are kind of stuck on the mystery.

Perhaps it's a spot composed differently than the rest of the surrounding area, the rest might reflect more so it appears to dim light. The surrounding area is that much 'brighter'
It's on hold at the moment because frankly no one has a reasonable answer. They can't exactly put out statements saying ''umm the most likely answer at this point is an alien superstructure'' because it's not credible.
