Huge Distant Quasar Decreases it's Luminosity Factor Six to Seven Times in Only Two Years
LaMassa says "This is like a dimmer switch, and the power source just went dim." "Catching a quasar as it changes in a human lifetime is amazing." "I'm not sure at what level we might expect the activity to die out at, whether it be with a bang or with a whimper." (Their powerful whimpering quasar story)
Large and distant quasars would not change their brightness in our lifetime. This contradicts beginning level teachings in astronomy. Halton Arp and his followers must be correct, in that quasars are not distant objects, and that the quasar redshift interpretations for the expansion of the universe is altogether wrong. There is no way that quasar redshifts are a reliable indicator of distance, when their luminosity can dramatically change in merely a few years. And if galaxies shut down too, like they say, then standard candles are flickering in brightness and also unreliable indicators of distance.
Urry said "there is the chance the quasar may fire up again, showing yet another changing look."
It seems very likely that many, if not most quasars, actually change their brightness with respect to earth in a matter of decades or centuries. This is only the first such detection of many more years to come.
Scientists use a fantasy like magical environment to exist just outside and near an unseen theoretical black hole, to explain away the presence of photons, as a ludicrous explaination.
J0159+0033 is the first changing face quasar discovered. Other examples of changing face galaxies include Mrk 590, Mrk 1018, NGC 7603, NGC 2617, NGC 7582, and NGC 1097.
Mrk 590 is a changing face AGN that is aligned face on with respect to earth.
Quasars are points of light that appear like stars in our own galaxy
