American scientists-astronomers found in the constellation of Aquarius double star FO, that fades away, in recent years it has become darker in seven times.
Scientist Colin Littlefield from the University of Notre Dame in the United States, said that although the FO and started to gain light over the past few years it has died so much that the process of extinction is irreversible.
FO is a rare double star, which consists of a large dwarf, a small, ordinary star, of nahodtsya DRG are very close to each other.
In addition, a star located about 500 light-years from Earth. FO studied for the first time in 2014 with the help of a telescope “Kepler”. Today, when the star came out from behind the Sun, astronomers saw that it faded by two magnitudes.
In addition, she began to blink. This resulted in surges of brightness, which increases, then decreases by 50% every 22 and 11 minutes.Scientists still do not know why the star has begun to fade. They suggest that this has resulted in the stain on one of the luminaries.For a normal life FO, of the outer layers of normal stars should fall in the gravitational part of the dwarf, which it absorbs matter. According to astronomers, spot recovers this natural process, which the star began to die.
