The star’s large irregular changes in brightness are consistent with a large mass (or many small masses together) orbiting the star in “tight formation”. Some hypotheses have been proposed to explain the star’s unusual light profile.
This information is floating all over the web . . . I was particularly interested in the fact that this star is in the Cygnus constellation because I am currently reading a book called: The Cygnus Mystery by Andrew Collins. Subtitled Unlocking the Ancient Secret of Life’s Origins in the Cosmos. . . . from the distant past and a far off star comes a revelation to change all we know about who we are, where we come from, and where we go from from here.
Coincidence? . . . or double witness?
