The light version of radio LBI (long-baseline interferometry) is just starting, and may produce reconstructed images of stellar discs (albeit with rather low S/N), and then there's the technique for reconstructing starspots …
Some show starspots, which are similar to sunspots, and a few produce flares that would sterilize their nearest planets.
"It takes a considerable amount of time for starspots to rotate into view and then out of view," says Jon Jenkins, Kepler co-investigator for data analysis.
"The stellar activity (presence of changing starspots on its surface) generates a strong scattering of the measurements," Moutou said.
