Yes, it turns out that the night sky, which has remained static enough to guide seamen and pirates and explorers for eons, is changing.
The Vanishing and Appearing Sources during a Century of Observations Project (VASCO) compares 70-year-old surveys with recent images of the night sky to document what has changed, and after years of painstaking work (there are a lot of stars, after all), they’ve published their results in the Astronomical Journal.
The 100-odd stars that were documented to have disappeared could represent short-lived flashes in the night, or they could be actual stars that disappeared.
The researchers hope their results, and results to come, will be relevant to astronomy and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI).

I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

See a potentially dangerous species developing? Just turn of their light and heat and never worry about them again.
I know it’s more fun to blame the CIA, but they just don’t have the technology, even theoretically, dammit!
