SETI Talks: Going Dark: The Mystery of Vanishing Stars - Livestream

Comparing a 70-year-old survey with recent images of the night sky, astronomers have discovered that 100 stars may have gone dark. Those vanishing light sources could be short-lived flashes in the night or possibly, the disappearance of a long-lasting star.  These preliminary findings almost certainly represent natural and well-understood events, but there is the hope that they could indicate technological civilizations elsewhere.

Speakers: Beatriz Villaroel, Vanishing & Appearing Sources during a Century of Observations (VASCO); James Davenport, University of Washington
