What about a planetary collision that has mostly destroyed both planets? This would produce a cloud that would blot out the sunlight in the periodic fashion as seen. This cloud would disperse over a period of time (centuries? millennia?) that could account for the dimming effect that has been observed. What would be the reason why this would not account for the observations?

Measuring the dimming of starlight as a planet crosses the face of its star during orbit, scientists can collect a wealth of information, even without ever seeing those worlds directly.

Using methods that allow them to estimate the average stellar illumination and temperatures on their surfaces, scientists have already identified dozens of locations where life could potentially exist.
If you wanted to contact another world the cheapest way would be to use your sun as a giant semaphore. Just as your planet shows against the sun The shading of the sun with a planet size blinder would show up as a easily detected sign that someone is there. Cheaper than radio or laser communications energy wise and cost wise.
and all you would need as a technology level is something slightly higher than what we currently have.

Getting weirder!

My speculative wild a$$ guess, the thing is a borderline black hole, literally fluctuates in and out of collapse condition.

The star is acting weird but this time there seem to be a lot of people taking a little time out of the schedules to look so maybe we can get enough data to see something definitive. :D

Something comes into our solar system from the general direction of one of the most likely habitable G5v start system with water worlds does a hard right around the sun another G5v star system with water worlds and heads towards pegasus another G5v star system with water worlds. in effect flying by or going to be flying by 3 of the 11 discovered planets with water closest to earth and the only sun like planets in the bunch. If I were a conspiracy nut I would be wondering right now what was up. On the other hand at the speed it was going it would take 100,000s of years just to make the trip using classical newtonian physics . Nobody,alien or earthwise got time for that, But because I am paranoid I would keep a eye on that rock to look for any change in velocity. :lol:

I've made enough chatter to know that. Flexability relative, and Star Trek's depiction at least was not a very good one.

Well it looks like we are back to dust again... but that still does not explain the brightening seen twice. :?

How is this for speculation. There is a smallblack hole or neutron star orbiting the visible star and it keeps the orbital debris from coalescing. Then, on occasion, it gravity lenses the star light toward earth.

Going from memory, but I thought the issue was a-periodic dips in light, as opposed to increases?
