"Where's the Flux?" Paper & Articles
First let me say that I don't think this is aliens. But if a stray lottery ticket landed in your lap, wouldn't you go "hmmm" and check the numbers? (No, you're not winning the lottery either.) Anyway, here is the paper causing all the fuss, and two more accessible-yet-informative articles:
KIC 8462852 – Where's the flux? Yes, they actually named a serious paper that.
Bad Astronomy's commentary – actually, a pretty good article.
The Atlantic weighs in. One more for the liberal arts majors.
