Alien Megastructure Star KIC 8462852 Dims Again: My Money on Alien Travel Season

I think someone is going to visit a nearby solar system for vacation this year.
Late last week, astronomers around the world prepared to work through the weekend observing one of the most enigmatic stars known to humanity: KIC 8462852, better known as Tabby's Star, Boyajian's Star or the "alien megastructures star." Amateur and pro star watchers trained telescopes on the star some 1,400 light-years away, and now we're able to get an early look at those observations and take a few tiny, tentative steps toward solving the mystery of this very weird star.
I mean you need a lot of power in order to send alien ships to another solar system so that would explain the dimming.
