Apparently NatGeo has a new show called "Chasing U.F.O's". That will be premiering next week, and they are focusing their first episode on the WOW signal.





The Wow! signal was a strong narrowband radio signal detected by Jerry R. Ehman on August 15, 1977, while working on a SETI project at the Big Ear radio telescope of The Ohio State University then located at Ohio Wesleyan University's Perkins Observatory, Delaware, Ohio.[1] The signal bore expected hallmarks of potential non-terrestrial and non-Solar System origin. It lasted for the full 72-second 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 antenna 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.[1]

But was it? More than three decades later, the Wow Signal, as it has come to be known to SETI researchers, remains both the first and best potential evidence of communication from extraterrestrials, and one of the most perplexing mysteries in science. Over the years, Ehman and colleagues worked to rule out other explanations—such as satellites, aircraft or ground-based transmitters on Earth. But by the same token, researchers have yet to prove that it actually is message from space. “It’s an open question.” Ehman told the Columbus Dispatch in 2010. Or as the late science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke once put it in a 1997 interview with New Scientist magazine, “God only knows what it was.”

To grasp the significance of the Wow Signal, it helps to understand what Ehman and his colleagues were looking for. Back in the early 1960s, Cornell physicists Philip Morrison and Guiseppe Cocconi had tried to figure out how a distant extraterrestrial civilization, if one existed, might try to contact others in the universe. First, they hypothesized, aliens would use a radio signal, since such transmissions require relatively little energy to generate and can travel huge distances across space. Second, they assumed that the aliens would be smart enough to pick a message that other intelligent species might understand, even if they spoke a very different language. Chemicals, they noted, emit distinctive electromagnetic frequencies, or signatures, which is how astronomers can determine the composition of distant planets and stars from their light. Since hydrogen, the most common element in the universe, emits a signal with a frequency of 1420 megahertz, they reasoned that aliens might send out a signal that mimicked it.

And here is the WOW signal location. For those that it might interest.



Even though I dont have twitter I think its interesting nonetheless.

Peace, NRE.

Thanks for posting this.

It's amazing how many channels are now carrying UFO shows. Times have changed, haven't they?

I wanted to share a story with you about meeting a prominent UFO researcher in Sedona, Arizonia a few years back. He had a small gathering of people and we asked questions.

I asked him about SETI, as I was wondering why if there were UFO's why SETI hadn't found anything. He looked at me and said, "Why don't YOU think they've found anything?"

And I said, "because they're corrupt? They're part of the cover-up?"

And he looked at me again and nodded his head yes.

And that's all he wanted to say about that.

I wonder how long it will be before we get a visit from the galctic police telling us to stop polluting the universe with all the soap episodes that we've been leaking into space for decades.


As someone above mentioned, seti would not tell us even if they did find something. They say just enough to keep getting funded, and thats all.

Wanted to give this a bump since its in a few days.

Thanks for sharing this! I'm still thinking on what I will tweet. I think it will most likely asking them to make disclosure rather than us having to wait on our Governments to do it.

Not holding out much hope for this show. Based on the teaser commercial, it looks like it's going to be one of those shows like the one on Animal Planet called Freak Encounters where it's portrayed as a 'real' show but it's really just like a mini version of one of SyFy's terrible movies. Or it's going to be one of those documentaries where in every episode they somehow manage to capture footage of a UFO.

I didn't like the way they did the preview either, it kind of plays into the whole "UFOs = ridiculous" attitude. It was just cheap and stupid looking, hopefully the actual show won't be like that. For those that haven't seen it, it was a couple actors chasing UFO flybys through a desert in a manner reminiscent of a B-rated sci-fi movie.

If the first episode is the wow signal, then I guess there really isn't much to ridicule about that so maybe it will be better than it appears. Here's the preview commercial, it's a tad corny:



Sad, hopefully they paid some silly advertising company to do that and it's not indicative of the actual show.

I don't care about sending any tweets into space, but if I did it would be: "Will work for transportation away from Earth, for two"

Advanced civilizations have fairly robust filtering technology. Mostly -- they come for our rock n roll.

I am always cautiously optimistic about these kinds of shows, and I am usually terribly disappointed. Here's to hope, I guess.

Hopefully the show is nothing like that "preview" video. Like said above, it looks like a cheap sci fi movie with terrible acting
I will give the show a shot, although i wont get my hopes up too much for it. Hopefully I'll be surprised

I was less interested in the show and more interested in those that wanted to tweet a message into space, and what they would have to say.

I remember a few years back the question was asked to the masses, if they could send a message into space what would it be, and most of the people agreed they would say "HELP!!".

Needless to say the message was not sent. If anything just the messages from others alone should be comical, sad, and even potentially eye opening.

Peace, NRE.

A question: Where exactly did the 'wow' signal come from? Did it come from a known constellation?

Apparently this is some footage from the first episode that will be airing tonight: "Lights in the Sky"

video.nationalgeographic.com...

Pretty convincing little shot they got there on the supposed "flying saucer." But now I'm wondering...is this for real? Or is this a ploy fabricated by Fox Cable Networks to burn the image of ET existence into the minds of the sheeple to prepare them for a false flag ET invasion? If it wasn't for the fact that Fox Cable Networks owns Nat. Geo., I may be more prone to being 100% convinced this footage is real. But we all know how Fox and all of their associates love to lie to the masses...I guess time will tell.
