Did anyone follow / remember that odd star our Kepler Satellite found?

It's called KIC 8462852, and The Atlantic did a good article on it in October

In 2011, several citizen scientists flagged one particular star as “interesting” and “bizarre.” The star was emitting a light pattern that looked stranger than any of the others Kepler was watching.

The light pattern suggests there is a big mess of matter circling the star, in tight formation. That would be expected if the star were young. When our solar system first formed, four and a half billion years ago, a messy disk of dust and debris surrounded the sun, before gravity organized it into planets, and rings of rock and ice.

But this unusual star isn’t young. If it were young, it would be surrounded by dust that would give off extra infrared light. There doesn’t seem to be an excess of infrared light around this star.

It appears to be mature.

When I spoke to Boyajian on the phone, she explained that her recent paper only reviews “natural” scenarios. “But,” she said, there were “other scenarios” she was considering.

Jason Wright, an astronomer from Penn State University, is set to publish an alternative interpretation of the light pattern. SETI researchers have long suggested that we might be able to detect distant extraterrestrial civilizations, by looking for enormous technological artifacts orbiting other stars. Wright and his co-authors say the unusual star’s light pattern is consistent with a “swarm of megastructures,” perhaps stellar-light collectors, technology designed to catch energy from the star.

A bunch of Blog and theorists picked up and it and everyone jumped on Aliens since we can't think of a natural cause. Talk of Dyson Speheres etc etc. Anyway a paper was published in November that described the possibility of it being a group of super comets . This obviously rained on everyone's alien parade.

That is until yesterday / Today when a new paper came out. http://arxiv.org/abs/1601.03256

It's more easily explained here: http://www.centauri-dreams.org/?p=34837

Basically ... Not only are we seeing weird unexplainable dips in light, but we're also seeing a constant and accelerated rate of dimming just about killing the comet theory and breathing new life into the Aliens theory.

So it's either a Dyson Sphere or it's something natural we've never observed. I'm clinging to the Dyson Sphere hopes.
