Video of New Research Findings

Part of my research involves using different cameras. In this particular research block, I focused on the Massive Star setting with the sun in my previous work with Chris Potters great clues and insights. Well, this object has been there for a while now and appears to be getting brighter but light conditions and air quality play a big role so getting real world light output measurements from here is very limited.

In the face of this challenge, I believe this work will help to show what clues I found of just how much light activity this celestial object is undergoing.

Conclusions?

Many questions remain. More research needs to be completed. But one thing is certain, this celestial object is anything but normal.
