SETI has found something weird..

New Scientist is reporting that repeated signals of interest have been found (via the SETI@Home project) emanating from an area between Pisces and Aries. It could very well be some heretofore-undiscovered astronomical phenomenon, but the most compelling evidence that it may be “artificial” is its drift:

“There are other oddities. For instance, the signal’s frequency is drifting by between eight to 37 hertz per second. “The signal is moving rapidly in frequency and you would expect that to happen if you are looking at a transmitter on a planet that’s rotating very rapidly and where the civilisation is not correcting the transmission for the motion of the planet”

Very cool… I’ll be keeping my eye on this one. If it is aliens, they’re very far away. If it isn’t, it’s probably possums f*ckin around with the telescope.
