On August 15th, 1977, for 72 seconds, a strong narrowband carrier wave was detected by the Big Ear radio telescope at Ohio State University.


The characteristics of the signal would strongly suggest that it was not a natural phenomenon but a manufactured one.


It was broadcasting at 1420.456 MHz.


Jerry Ehman, the original discoverer of the Wow Signal is skeptical. “Even if it were intelligent beings sending a signal,” he said in an interview, “they’d do it far more than once. We should have seen it again when we looked for it 50 times.”
