Red giant stars billions of years old is called BP Piscium. The star is expected to swallow like a young star. BP Piscium terletak Matahari 1.000 tahun cahaya di konstelasi Pisces. BP Solar is located Piscium 1000 light-years away in the constellation Pisces. NASA menemukannya dengan bantuan observatorium sinar-X Chandra. NASA found it with help from Chandra X-ray observatory.

The scientists began studying this star since 15 years ago. Those surprised by the appearance of an unusual star.

Leading astronomers to believe that this is a red giant star, stars who have late stage of evolution. They concluded that the dust from the material formed from the remnants of young stars that have consumed and “digested”.

The scientists believe that the Earth someday may be a victim of the same fate of poor BP Piscium’s neighbors.
