Astronomers Have Found a Giant Megastructure Orbiting a Star Near Milky Way

Astronomers have found a large cluster of “mysterious” objects up in the space orbiting a star in our Milky Way Galaxy. According to experts, it looks like something which you can only expect an alien civilization to make. Jason Wright, Penn State University’s astronomer is all set to publish a detailed report about this “bizarre” star system which suggests that the objects might be a “collection of megastructures.”


One can easily be fascinated by the way they look. Although an alien civilisation up there should probably be the last hypothesis to consider, however, one can expect something like this to be build only by an alien civilisation. The star has received its complex name by just like all other astronomical findings do and it is KIC 8462852. The star lies above the Milky Way between Cygnus and Lyra constellations.

Civilisations today have become way more technologically advanced and they are creating better pathways for collecting energy and harnessing energy directly from the star could be a big possibility. So, if this speculation around the megastructure that is being placed around its star system turns out to be correct, it could be a big moment for the huge sets of solar panels which have been placed around the star. The astronomers who have located the megastructure are also interested in pointing a radio dish towards the star so as to look at it for wavelengths which could be associated with technological civilisations. If everything goes right, first observations could take place in January with follow-ups coming even quicker.

Located about 46 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Ursa Major, NGC 2841 is helping astronomers solve one of the oldest puzzles in astronomy
