@adactio The theory that’s swirling is that it could be “under construction”, hence the penetrating light. Theoretically. ;)

Trying not to get irritated by people hinting that the KIC 8462852 anomaly could by a Dyson sphere—a Dyson sphere occludes all the light!
@adactio what if its under construction? It would be partial. Or maybe the like big windows
@adactio so, dyson swarm or ringworld ;)
@adactio Unless it’s under construction. Or it’s a Dyson bowl.
@adactio I know, I know, but it’s pretty awesome & tantalising anyway! “…enormous technological artifacts orbiting other stars”
@adactio It could be an incomplete one. I imagine a building such spherical structures would begin with the hemispheres.
@adactio Only if you assume the dyson sphere is operating at it’s theoretical maximum of 100%.
@adactio Close. That is the Dyson Shell. A Dyson Sphere will not necessarily occlude all of the light.
