Researchers suspect that they have observed a transforming Quasar. Effectively speaking, the huge radiant mass was altering its brightness to high and low levels. This is for the first time ever that such a phenomenon has been observed, and scientists say that it has the potential to help unravel several mysteries associated with the Universe.

A Quasar is a huge and energetic object that is powered by large black holes and throws vast quantities of radiations to the Universe. In the phases of their evolution, these celestial bodies were known to move in ages that involved bright and dim periods. But this is for the first time that Yale Un...
