Tonight, we’re going to talk about “the Most Mysterious Star” in the Universe–
“Tabby’s Star.”
This amazing celestial object, named for the astronomer that led the team that first identified it, Dr. Tabetha Boyajian, Tabby’s Star was initially brought to public attention after four-years of NASA’S Kepler Space Telescope observations.  Tabby’s Star exhibits an extraordinary and unique pattern of “semi-regular, stellar eclipses” … caused by “something” that astronomers cannot see or detect by any other means!
Theories to explain this baffling astronomical enigma have ranged from “clouds of orbiting dust” coming between the star and Earth, to seriously proposed “orbiting ET mega-structures” … built (or BEING built!) by some “alien, super civilization.”
My guest tonight, Garry Sacco — another “citizen scientist” — has just published a peer-reviewed scientific paper that predicts the next “pattern of eclipses” for Tabby’s Star … which will allow us to decide which theory is correct … including “aliens.”
Tune in ….
Richard C. Hoagland

    wish you would let the guest get their point across

    What just happened? The show just cut back to previous show?

    holy craft…richard and msm russian claptrap

  4. Good luck to Mr Gary Sacco in the future.

  5. I Think that Gary Sacco is one of the smartest persons as he is not a scientist in real life, to be able to come up with this theory for this Star is just amazing And I wish him best of luck in the future.
