WATCH: Have Alien Megastructures Surrounding a Star Been Discovered by NASA?

NASA has reported that a large cluster of objects in space surrounding a star near the Milky Way. Astronomers are saying that the structures appear to be something you’d “expect an alien civilization to build.”

Jason Wright, an astronomer from Penn State University, will soon be publishing a report about the find. Also, further actions may be taken to find out more about the discovery.

He told the The Atlantic“I was fascinated by how crazy it looked. Aliens should always be the very last hypothesis you consider, but this looked like something you would expect an alien civilization to build.”

The KIC 8462852 star lies above the Milky Way between the constellations Cygnus and Lyra. What’s wild is that the discovery was made in 2009, but word is just getting out now.
