The buzz is about KIC 8462852:
Astronomers have spotted a strange mess of objects whirling around a distant star. Scientists who search for extraterrestrial civilizations are scrambling to get a closer look.

What is going on? A cloud of debris? Space junk?
Do we need to consider aliens? Dyson spheres?
I’d say that’s a bit of premature jump and one that is going to get some attention but it’s just an argument from ignorance. We don’t know…
Let’s not confuse “unexplained” with unexplainable.
Space stuff is not the editor’s strong hand. I deal with earth. Feel free to add your two cents and additional info on this story in the comments.
