And a new hypothesis appeared that fits the data much better and is much more fascinating than any alien megastructure:

A ringed gas giant, shading the star with its ring.

Just for info.

From the SETI@Home project:

Quote:
SETI@home: Data from "Tabby's Star" is flowing.
For those who didn't recognize the name KIC8462852 in their work unit names, this data comes from GBT observations of Tabby's Star (aka Boyajian's Star, aka WTF-0001, aka the Weirdest star in the galaxy). This is not yet the full data set, which lives at Penn State, it's some test on-target/off-target observations that we're checking out.
