A previously unremarked star in the constellation Cygnus has,in the past year,become known as the most mysterious star in our Galaxy.Boyajian's star exhibits puzzling episodes of sporadic deep dimming discovered in photometry with the Kepler Mission. Proposed explanations have focused on its obscuration by colliding exoplanets, exocomets, and even intervention of alien intelligence. These hypotheses have considered only phenomena external to the star because the radiative flux missing in the… Expand
