That's almost as creepy as the guy who died from inhaling fungus from his bagpipes for decades.

The Bad Astronomer on how astronomers are finding data for EXOcomets:

...that is: comets in star systems outside of the Solar System.

The "fang-like" dips in a star's light differ considerably from light curves of planets. Planetary shadows have a characteristic curve where there is relatively fast drop in the star's brightness, followed by a relatively flat-bottomed portion, then an equally fast restoration of the star's brightness to "normal" such as this for Kepler-10b:

And the authors of this paper on these examples pointed out that there was another paper published in 1998 which predicted that we could possibly see such fang-shaped light curves specifically because of comets.

There was a guy here in town that used to set up a nice telescope by the river-side walking path every Tuesday evening all summer long. He would have it pointed to a different stellar object every week.
Very cool.
