An unusual theory surrounding the fluctuating brightness of KIC 8462852 , also known as Tabby's Star, is that the object could be in close proximity to an alien spaceship lurking in the Cygnus constellation.

CD Projekt released the PS4 Pro update for The Witcher 3 this morning, according to various user reports online. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
