Since the SETI program first began searching for possible alien radio signals a few decades ago, there have been many false alarms but also instances of fleeting signals of interest which disappeared again as quickly as they had appeared.

It was a new project and all the science people waited and waited until one day one of the science kids faked everyone out. The WOW signal is in league with crop circles and the bigfoot video.

Well anyways the folks at SETi thank you, because here we are later and still searching.

Bigfoot of the stars. Crop circles in radio. Hoaxs are common.
