>> about 1200 light years from earth is a star nicknamed tab estar for the lead researcher. >> between 2011 and 2013, researchers using nasa's telescope they noticed an unusual dimming of tab estar. explanations include clouds and comets, fragments of a planet still forming perhaps. >> yeah. but some people, including jason rice think the dimming could be evidence of a large manufactured structure built by alien life. jason visiting associate professor at uc berkeley joining us via skype. give us a sense. tab estar compared to our own star, are they similar. >> no. tabby star is a little bigger and hotter. >> i'm sitting on the beach and it is sunny and then it gets dark. i look up and usually there's a
9:25 am
cloud over the sun. is it possible that indeed what this dimming is clouds of dust or something going by the star? >> that's right. we don't have any really good explanations because we've never seen a star get dimmer quite the way this star has. people have come up with all sorts of ideas for what it could be. the space between stars does have a lot of dust and gas, clouds. and so it could be a very unusual kind of cloud we have never seen between us and tabby stars. that is one of the ideas we're trying to test right now actually. >> how far away is this star? whatever is happening is 120 light years ago, right? i mean how does that work. >> yeah. this star is something like 1500 light years away. so we do see the star like it was in the past. but as far as we're concerned, we're seeing the light, we're seeing it get dimmer right now. we would like to know what it is making it dim. >> what led you to the theory this could be some form of an
9:26 am
alien life built ship? >> right. so people who work on the search for ex intelligence think that structures may be built. luke pointed out if that happens, the telescope would be able to see them when they passed in front of the stars. we should keep a lookout for that. until this star came along, we didn't have any evidence for it. until we figure out what it is, that is one possible but very unlikely explanation. >> i was reading more into this. what i found interesting is -- correct me if i'm wrong. but this particular dimming was predicted a couple years ago? >> yeah. during the kepler mission, it got dim a couple times in unpredictable ways. the two deepest dimmings when it got 20% dimmer than usual were spaced almost two years apart. if you are counting two years and two more years, that's today. some speculated this might happen right now.
9:27 am
>> have you seen some of the drawings of what the alien structure could look like? it looks like the death star. >> people get fanciful with the drawings. those weren't made by astronomers. who knows. >> thank you, professor rice. let us know if you find something out. >> we will let you know. >> if anyone is heading our way. >> yes. >> let us know. >> who knows. space is a large area. coming up next on mornings on 2 the 9, stretch of highway 1 near big sur is closed because of a huge landslide. the extensive work by caltrans to get it back open. memorial day weekend one of the busiest times on the road as we know. also one of the deadliest. we will talk to the highway patrol about officers are doing to try to keep us safe out there this weekend. a hundred miles?

9:33 am
stopped. it was down south. we had to put a spike strip in front of their car. it took a while to wake up the driver because he was so impaired. they shook the car just to wake him up. you can't make up what we see. >> the last thing is, if you are driving, can you expect to see, you know, more patrol officers? you also have, you know, people who are kind of not -- i would say you don't have the typical cars. you have the white cars. you call them the polar bears. >> yes. >> those things are cool but don't look like police cars. you could be looking for a black and white but it could be a white car. >> it is hard to see what a patrol car looks like in your rear view mirrors. we have mys and bmws and the all white polar bear cars. we don't want you looking for us. drive drive safely then you don't have to worry if we're behind you. >> good advice to keep the red and blue lights out of your

9:47 am
from jersey to washington, d.c. the tour was organized in 1997 to honor the police officers who have died in the line of duty. what started with 18 riders now consists of more than 2200 members. from nine chapters across the country and all the money raised goes to the national law enforcement officers. >> this morning, we are joaned by lieutenant joshua patser who participated in this year's road and suzanne moody, the wife of brad moody who died in the line of duty in 2008. suzanne and lieutenant, thank you for coming in. >> thank you for having us. >> it wasn't long after your husband's death that you made it back east. six or seven months and you were there. why did you go so soon, do you think. >> to honor the officers from the previous year. the following year in washington, d.c. and my daughters who were two and three at the time and i made it back there. >> you wanted to be there. >> absolutely. you know, i just wanted to see
9:48 am
him and his name be honored. and it was something important for me and my daughters at that age to know that yes their dad was gone and their dad was not coming back but they need to noel always be remembered. >> had you heard of it before. >> you know, i hadn't. i had never heard of it. he in july of 2008 had mentioned wanting to go back to d.c. to see these names on a wall. and i had no idea what it was. little did i know three months later my husband's name would be added. >> all of the money goes to the fund to honor the officers. but the families, what has that fund meant to you and your daughters? >> you know, it means so much going back there. every year i go back and i see his name on the wall and it makes me proud that my husband 'name will -- my husband's name
9:49 am
will never be forgotten. our loved one is gone and they are not coming back, but they won't be forgotten. >> you fell off your bike at the age of 7 and never had been on a bike ever since but you rode 300 miles. >> i rode the van that picked up riders who got hurt or injured or whatever. and i thought, you know what, i could do this. i could ride 300 miles. and, you know, i did it. and the pain that i felt the day that my husband died was not even in comparison to the day that i rode. and riding through the wall where his name was, it just meant so much to me. >> lieutenant, watching the images on television is one thing over the years. but then actually participating in it, what for you was something that you did not expect as a participant? >> when you're riding, you know, there comes times when it is cold or you start to hurt and your muscles ache and you think about all of those names on the wall. there are over 22,000 names on
9:50 am
the wall. and anybody on that wall would rather be where i'm at. it is the least that i can do to support their honor, their name and remember that they died in the line of duty protecting and serving us. so it is the littlest that i can do to give back. it keeps motivate you year after year that the little things in life that you think are a big deal are really small. it is just a way to give back. the first year that i rode, i got the opportunity to talk to some survivors like suzanne moody and the rest of them. they tell you their story and how their loved ones, husbands, wives, daughters, sons, and how they lived. and that's what we want to honor. >> law enforcement is a tight knit family just in general. but i can't imagine crossing the finish line and all coming together. do you get a sense of even more tightness. >> i have chills thinking about it. it is a sight to see. >> it is a little overwhelming.
9:51 am
the judicial square is full of people cheering you on, to remember the fallen. keep their names and their memories alive. >> that's why we ride. we ride to keep these officers' memories alive and raise awareness about the fall glenn do you think you will ride or maybe your ideas. >> i entertained riding in 2019 for his ten-year. now that i put it on national tv. >> we are going to hold you to it. they might want to come back and ride one year. it would be an honor to see them do that for their father. >> what both of you have said would motivate a lot of people to join in. it is a small thing that you can do in comparison so what they did and gave for all of us. it is inspirational. >> thank you for coming in. >> thank you. >> we appreciate it. >> we will be right back after the break.
