Telescope network monitors star
In the coming year, the KIC 8462852 star will be constantly monitored by a global network of coordinated, robotic telescopes.
The observations will be made by the Las Cumbres Observatory network, which consists of 18 land-based telescopes throughout the world. One of them is always "on duty", and if it spots a light dimming, several telescopes will immediately focus on the star to observe the process at different wavelengths. This could give us an indication of what blocks out the star’s light.
