A Boson star is a theoretical type of exotic star that on observation from a distance would present itself like a blackhole. It would have an accretion disk from the heated up drawn in matter, and as its body is made of bosons, it would be transparent. I am unsure if I should have these in my story as I am trying to stick to confirmed observations like blackholes, but the idea of such a type of star is intriguing.
My question is: If the Boson star is transparent, unlike a blackhole which blocks all light behind it, how would the light behind the star look through the boson star? If there were large dense clusters behind the star, would the lightshow up in the boson stars hole as they would normally look? Would they be distorted or fuzzy? As I am creating a graphic novel, the visual details are very important for me.
Edit: A boson star theoretically has to fall within the Chandrasekhar limit so its radius can be no more than a white dwarfs but if one was to observe it at a closer range and there was no accretion disk and matter obscuring the view how would light behind the star be affected?
