Peeeeep she heard it on the radio. A loud pulse then it was gone. What was that? It had been a piercing squeal.
But it was gone. A disturbance in the aether, a cosmic scream perhaps??
She checked the Internet. It was all over Facebook. At precisely 4pm Greenwich mean time a signal had slashed into the Earth’s atmosphere. So strong it was picked up by transistor radios and radio telescopes alike. The Internet was calling it a Wow signal based on a signal heard by a radio telescope on August 15th 1977.
Could it be interference from Earth? But the signal had eminated from the milky way galaxy. Millions of light years away across the sky from us.
Speculation increased Could it be aliens? Or the voice of God? Maybe there was a new astronomical phenomenon.
For now the sky remained annoyingly quiet and the world waited with mixed fear and hope to see if it would happen again or what would happen next.
