    Not comets? Aliens?

    I had not read much on this star, but it is apparently causing a bit of a stir in the world of Astronomy and the search for alien life.

    I first read about this a little while ago.

    I hope it's not comets. I really hope it an alien megastructure.

    If the pay's right and they cover the travel and lodgings, I'd be happy to work away for a while, subcontracting. Sounds like a very long contract.

    Finally, they're coming to take me away!

    Arthur C Clark's Ringworld anyone?

    I agree with Snowfire - I really do hope it's a megastructure being build as we watch.
