Scientists have discovered a strange flashing star floating in space. The star system is dubbed LRLL 54361 and was discovered using the infrared Spitzer Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope. The most interesting thing about star system is that the star appears to be flashing like a strobe light.
Researchers and astronomers have been investigating the system and believe that the cause of the flashing may be that what they have discovered isn’t a single star, but a newly formed pair of stars. The scientists believe that this pair of stars may be circling each other very closely causing the light to flash like a strobe. The researchers say that the discovery of this flashing star system is important because this is only the third “strobe light” object ever seen.
