The Southern Vermont Astronomy Group hosts a presentation by Claudio Veliz geared for general audiences and will include Hubble images as well as translated sound recordings of some of the mysterious space signals.

In 1977 a researcher walked into a radio telescope control room and saw telescope had recorded a radio signal from near the constellation Sagittarius. He was so struck by how unusual it was that, in the margin; he scribbled the word “WOW!” It has yet to be satisfactorily explained, even by traditionally dispassionate researchers in the field. This will be a review of why its characteristics—and those of a number of similar events—are intriguing to researchers and how they are working to uncover the sources of these signals.

This event is open to the public and any level of experience is welcome. The venue is ADA accessible.
