That's cool actually. It's too bad that the, "Wow Signal," didn't end up being ET trying to talking to us or each other and didn't re-occur
was a strong
signal detected by
Jerry R. Ehman
on August 15, 1977, while working on a
the Big Ear
The Ohio State University
then located at
Ohio Wesleyan University
, Delaware, Ohio.
The signal bore expected hallmarks of potential non-
origin. It lasted for the full 72-
duration that Big Ear observed it, but has not been detected again. The signal has been the subject of significant media attention.
Amazed at how closely the signal matched the expected signature of an interstellar signal in the
used, Ehman circled the signal on the computer printout and wrote the comment "Wow!" on its side. This comment became the name of the signal.
