Mysterious WOW Signal Decoded After 40 Years?

By | On + -

The WOW signal is considered one of the most intriguing events in the search for life in outer space. In 1977 a SETII researcher, astronomer Jerry Ehman, working at the Ohio State University’s Big Ear radio telescope heard an extremely strong signal coming from the constellation Sagittarius.

The signal last 72 seconds then it was never heard from there again. It was dubbed the WoW signal after its discoverer wrote WOW with an exclamation mark on a computer printout next to a numerical representation of the signal.

Many researchers still believe this signal may have been our first interception of an alien broadcast because analysis of the data has ruled out satellites as the source and regulations on Earth do not permit the broadcast frequencies in the range picked up by Ohio’s Big Ear telescope. But now, Professor Antonio Paris of St Petersburg College, an ex-analyst of the US Department of Defense, believes he might have cracked the mystery of this famous signal.

 In a recent interview, Paris have searched the archives looking for another possible explanation for wow’ signal and found two “suspects”, 2 comets zoomed past on Earth at the very moment the Wow signal was recorded. These comets, called 266P/Christensen and 335P/Gibbs, were discovered in 2006 and 2008, so weren’t considered as possible reasons for the signal in 1977 as no one knew of their existence.

I have always been fascinated with astronomy, space and – more importantly – whether there is life in the universe,

he told the Sunday Times .

After 40 years, the Wow signal was a cold case I wanted to reopen. Here we have a crime scene with a date and time, and a little description of the subject.

A comet has 3 basic parts: Nucleus, made of rock, iron, dust and a variety of frozen chemicals including water and gases. The Coma, as the cold, solid nucleus approaches the Sun, its heat up and so the comet begins to transform, expelling water, dust, gas and debris form a fuzzy haze around the nucleus. A comet’s coma can span a few miles in diameter to hundreds of thousands. And finally, the Dust Tail of a Comet. As the nucleus and coma move closer to our Sun, the comet continues its transformation releasing heavier particles and debris. The H2 (hydrogen) broke down by solar UV light forms large hydrogen cloud with a radius of several million kilometers around the nucleus.

In the new paper, published earlier this year, Paris found that the hydrogen line, and the hydrogen clouds of 266P/Christensen and P/2008 Y2 (Gibbs) were responsible for the strong 1420 MHz signal of the famous wow signal.

But there’s one way to demonstrate his theory. In 2017, the comet 266P will pass by in the same area (the Chi Sagittarii star group) again. So if Paris theory is correct, then the comets will produce the same signal or something near the WOW radio frequency band.

Paris has now raised $18,455 (£12,925) of his target of $20,000 (£14,000), which will be used to build a telescope just in time to see the comets passing by that area of the sky.

Comet 266P/Christensen will transit the neighborhood of the “Wow” signal on January 25, 2017. With your assistance, The Center for Planetary Science will have an opportunity to direct a radio telescope toward this phenomenon, analyze the hydrogen spectra of these two comets, and test our hypothesis.

But some astronomy expert are skeptics and said that Paris would be disappointed if the signal wasn’t produced by comets. However, the professor added: “There’s a little bit of inside of me that hopes its aliens,”.

    I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT EXTRATERRESTIAL CIVILIZATIONS CAPABLE OF BUILDING A RADIO TRANSMITTER WOULD HAD TO HAVE EVOLVED AN ALMOST IDENTICAL ANATOMY TO HUMANS. THEY WOULD NEED FOUR DIGITS WITH OPPOSING THUMBS IN ORDER TO MANIPULATE TOOLS AND GO ON TO DEVELOP TECHNOLOGY. THEY WOULD NEED TO BE ABLE TO WALK UPRIGHT ON TWO LEGS IN ORDER TO BUILD LARGE STRUCTURES, HAVE FORWARD FACING STEREOSCOPIC VISION LIKE OURSELVES AND HAVE THE SAME EMOTIONAL FACULTIES IN ORDER TO BE INSPIRED TO DO SCIENCE. IN OTHER WORDS, TO ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES THEY WOULD HAVE TO BE ALMOST INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM HUMANS. THE CHANCES OF ANOTHER SPECIES EVOLVING ON ALMOST IDENTICAL LINES TO OURSELVES, WHILE NOT IMPOSSIBLE, IS EXTREMELY UNLIKELY – AT LEAST WITHIN OUR OWN GALAXY. THAT IS WHY WE MAY NEVER HEAR FROM E.T.(WHO MAY WELL BE MORE DOLPHIN-LIKE, HIGHLY
    INTELLIGENT BUT INCAPABLE OF DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGY).

      SORRY, I REPEATED A SENTENCE AT THE START BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT HAD DISAPPEARED, PERHAPS YOU CAN CORRECT IT FOR ME?


      • tony

        I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW THE NUMBERS MEAN ANYTHING OR WHERE THEY CAME FROM BUT IF YOU IGNORE ALL THE LETTERS AND JUST ADD UP THE NUMBERS AND DIVIDE BY THE COLUMNS AND ROWS IT GIVES NUMBERS WHICH COULD RELATE TO LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET AND IT READS…

      No offence but that’s pretty stupid.


      • DVDA

        No offense but you’re an asshole


      • Sarah

        Shouldn’t be offensive to point out that this Tony guy is a noisy idiot.

      Tentacles might also be sufficient…and if tentacles would be sufficient, the so might highly evolved insect legs…or who know what else evolution could produce. Seriously, no need to be such a downer Mr. Straker. “”The Universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we CAN imagine.” –Douglas Adams

      No need to shout, Tony


    • Deane F Miller

      Thank You Tony, there is intelligent life on planet Earth! I’m not alone here. DFM


    • Anthony

      Why four fingers? Why not 3, or 5 fingers and a thumb?

      Why two arms and two legs, why not 2 arms, 2 legs, and a middle set serving as either as needed?

      Why do they need to echo our emotions? If they are capable of record keeping and problem solving, sooner or later they will hit on the scientific method.

      Sounds a lot like anthropic principle to me.


  2. Taylor

    Wow, even a science article repeatedly misuses the word theory.


    • Merriam-Webster and Oxford dictionaries both agree that this is a perfectly valid use of the word theory. This is not scientific literature (which is written with the expectation that readers will have a sufficient degree of scientific knowledge and familiarity themselves), this is an article written for laymen with an interest in space and the universe. So I think given the target audience, using the word theory instead of the word hypothesis (which is far less likely to be in the vocabulary of someone who is not themselves a scientist) is the correct decision.

      TLDR: Don’t be so needlessly pretentious. This isn’t the Astrophysical Journal.


    • Brad

      How? A theory is an idea on how/why something happens. Once tested and proven it becomes fact, or disproven they go back to the drawing board….that’s my theory.


  3. Jeremy

    Earth can’t make intelligent life twice. Waver wonder why?


    • Phil Bullock

      Who’s to say it hasn’t already tried and it failed? Mankind’s age, compared to the earth’s age, is in the very first stage of prenatal existence. The earth is THAT old so we, as a species, have not been around long enough to know the actual true history of our planet. Everything we come up with is speculations and educated guesses.
      We gots a looooooong way to go before the real answers are ever found out.


    • Sarah

      Because it’s rare as hell and humans already occupy the niche. Nothing sinister about it.


    • bob the builder

      it could the human race would have to go back to the apes for help though


  4. Michael Broder

    So much derp…

    The Earth has already produced multiple species that would be considered intelligent, with several, such Homo neanderthalensis, possessing faculties strikingly similar to our own. Yes, they’re all extinct, but we will be soon too by any non-human specific time scale. Beyond that, several species of aquatic mammals demonstrate incredibly complex auditory means of communication and social behavior, but not on Facebook so they must be dumb, right? Sure, porpoises might be pretty sharp, and they definitely kill for sport, but they never built ak-47s, nuclear weapons, or death camps capable of processing tens of thousands of vibrant, living members of their own species to oil and ashes in the span of a day. The ignoramuses! Humanity’s defining trait isn’t intelligence, it’s self-destructive hubris. And this may be a commonality across all technologically advanced species–though I doubt it, the cards may be stacked against us as we are clearly descendant from a great-ape proto-species that lived where it threw its own poo. Some things never change.

    If I change all of the signal to numbers the first phase would decode to 64 which could mean words that has a 64 sum such as Israel, Zion, Jeshua (Hebrew for Jesus), Gautama as (Buddha), American, and Mercy. It could also be a pointer to the 1964 “Moon of Memphis” UFO (www.moonofmemphisufo.blogspot.com) which is the second coming of Jesus. If we add the 6 and 7 to the 64 phase then we get 77 and 77 is the sum of the word “Christ”. In the “Moon of Memphis” UFO blogspot, I have successfully decoded the numerology meaning of the Wow signal. This proves that the signal came from an UFO.


  6. William H. Bickers

    On August 15, 1977 at 22:16 or 10:16 PM EDT, a signal was detected by Ohio State University SETI Project from the constellation Sagittarius. Sagittarius, half human and half horse, is the centaur of mythology, the learned healer whose higher intelligence forms a bridge between Earth and Heaven. This signal called the “Wow Signal” was 6EQUJ5 with a following (6) and (7). If I decode the signal with numerology we get interesting words. First 6=6+E=5+Q=17+U=21+J=10+5=5 for a total of 64. The “Moon of Memphis” UFO appeared in 1964 and the words that has the same numeric sum are: “Israel”, “Zion”, “Jeshua” as Hebrew word for Messiah Jesus, “Gautama” as Buddha, “American”, and “Mercy”. If we decode to letters all of the signal then we get the letters (6=(F),EQUJ,5=(E)) meaning Flying Entity Q (or God) Under Jesus Entity; when we rearrange the letters for another meaning then we get (UFQEJE) meaning Unidentified Flying Q (or God) Entity, Jesus Entity. The other numbers of 6 and 7 could mean 67 subtracted from 100 for a sum of 33 for the God “Amen” and the initials (WHB) of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness. The witness of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO is “Bickers” and the sum of this last name is 67. If we add the 64 +6+7= 77 which is the sum of the words “Christ”, “Character”, and “Power”. The 6 and 7 converted to letters are (F) and (G) which together could mean Friendly or Flying God. If you add the 6+7=13; and 13=M for the “Moon of Memphis” UFO; then subtract 13 from 77 you get 64 for the 1964 year of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO appearance; if you add 13 to 77 you get 90 for the 1990 first voice communications of UFO spirits in the mind of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness. If you take only the numbers of the signal 6-5-67 with 67 meaning 1967 then you will have the start of the famous Six Days War whereby Israel defeated the invading neighbor countries. This date may mean that UFO and the God called “Amen” interceded to improve the outcome for Israel and was their Messiah with this Miracle War. The historic battle of Armageddon was probably the famous Six Day War of Israel in 1967 and that is why it decodes in the signal numbers. The date 6-5-1967 has a sum of 34 which is the sum of the word “Allah” (meaning God). The time 10:16 pm could be perceived as 10+16=26 which is the sum of the word “God” and 10=J meaning perhaps Jesus; if you used 22:16 then the digits equals 11 for the month of November whereby the “Moon of Memphis” UFO appeared on 11-22-1964 at 2200 and lasted about 16 minutes. If you decode 22:16 as 22=V and 16=P then it could mean Virtue Power. If you add the 72 seconds to 22:16 you get 22:17; the 17=Q (Flying God). If you add 22:16 as 22+16=38 you will have the same sum as the date of the signal 8-15-1977. If we decode the date 8-15-1977 we get a sum of 38 and in 1938 the radio show drama performed by Orson Welles, “War of the Worlds” was aired. If we take 1977 and subtract the 1+9 from 77 for a sum of 67 and subtract that from 100 for a sum of 33 for the God called “Amen”. If we take 1977 and subtract 19 from 77 for a sum of 58 which is the sum of the word “Star” or Star of Bethlehem UFO. If you decode the month 8 = H and the day 15 = O then it may mean Holy Object. If we analyze the location of the SETI Project, “Ohio”, we get a sum of 47 which is the sum of the word for God in Spanish called “Dios”. The 77 from 1977 is the sum of the word “Christ” and the 1+9=10 or J for Jesus thus 1977 means Jesus Christ. The signal was 72 seconds long which is the sum 72 of the street “Leweir” where the 1964 “Moon of Memphis” UFO was observed. The 72 seconds = 1 min 12 seconds with 1=A and 12=L or AL or (A)rtificial (L)ife; the sum of 72 is 9 for (I) or (I)ntelligence. The 7=G and 2=B for possibly 7 year old or (God’s Bickers), the witness of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO. The frequency of the signal 1420.4556 MHZ could be summed up to be 1420 = 7 and .4556 = 20 or 7.2 for the length of the transmission or the street “Leweir”; the 7=G and 20=T meaning possibly (G)od’s (T)ransmission ; and the 7 could mean the age of the witness of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO with 20 meaning T for Testimony meaning 7 year old Testimony. The sum of 1420.4556 = 27 which is the sum of the word “Code”, “Job”, or “Race”; the “Code” could mean numerology taught by UFO spirits to the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness, “Job” could mean a Schizophrenic prophet like the Biblical “Job” and also like the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness; and “Race” could mean White, Hispanics, and Blacks which could mean WHB or the initials of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness. The race could mean the U.S. Presidential race over the past twenty six years (26=God) whereby the initials WHB of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness was one or more of his initials in the President’s initials as a clue to the importance of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO testimony, analysis, theology, and Revelation. The frequency 1420 could mean 14=N, 20=T plus .4556 could mean DEEF for a message: “Noble Transmission” / “Divine Entity Eternal Friend” and a possible meaning in reverse “Feed The Needy” or “Feed Everybody End Death”. In addition, the .4556 could mean 1964 with the 55 meaning 10=J for Jesus or 1+9 and the 6 and 4 is 64; the 1420 could mean 14+20 = 34, the sum of the word “Allah”. The declination of the signal was J2000 Equinox of 26 57′ +-20′ which could mean 26 as sum of word “God” and 57 as sum of word “Moon” and “Mary” plus the birth year of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness; together may mean God of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO and Mary. If we add the 20′ to 57′ then we get 77′ and 77 is sum of word “Christ”; if we subtract 20′ from 57′ we get 37′ which is sum of the words “Like” and “Hell”. This analysis strongly suggests that God using a possible UFO created by God was responsible for the signal and the decoded sum of the signal of 64 makes it a pointer to the 1964 “Moon of Memphis” UFO event of the God called “Amen”. This radio signal helps to prove that the 1964 “Moon of Memphis” UFO was a solid object with radio capabilities, not a atmospheric plasma ball of light. UFOs can communicate with humanity and possibly can affect home radios.

In the first sequence the 6 and 5 for 65 is the sum of the word “Seven” meaning the age of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness. The second sequence numbers of 6 and 7 could mean 67 subtracted from 100 for a sum of 33 for the God “Amen” and the initials (WHB) of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness. The witness of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO is “Bickers” and the sum of this last name is 67. Also the sum of the word “Soul” is 67. If we add the 64 +6+7= 77 which is the sum of the words “Christ”, “Character”, “Judaism”, and “Power”. The 6 and 7 converted to letters are (F) and (G) which together could mean Friendly or Flying God. If you add the 6+7=13; and 13=M for the “Moon of Memphis” UFO; then subtract 13 from 77 you get 64 for the 1964 year of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO appearance; if you add 13 to 77 you get 90 for the 1990 first voice communications of UFO spirits in the mind of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness.

If you decode 22:16 as 22=V and 16=P then it could mean Virtue Power. If you add the 72 seconds to 22:16 you get 22:17; the 17=Q (Flying God). If you add 22:16 as 22+16=38 you will have the same sum as the date of the signal 8-15-1977. The 38 is the sum of the word “Kind”. If we decode the date 8-15-1977 we get a sum of 38 and in 1938 the radio show drama performed by Orson Welles, “War of the Worlds” was aired. If we take 1977 and subtract the 1+9 from 77 for a sum of 67 and subtract that from 100 for a sum of 33 for the God called “Amen”. Words with 67 as its sum are “Lives”, “Receive”, “Work” and “Bickers” (witness last name). When we add 1+9 to 77 we get 87 which the sum of the words “Priests”, “Truth” and “Baptist” (the witness religious denomination at seven years old). If we take 1977 and subtract 19 from 77 for a sum of 58 which is the sum of the words “Angels” and “Star” or Star of Bethlehem UFO. When you add 19 to 77, you get 96 which the sum of the words “Forgiven” and “Bigotry”. If you decode the month 8 = H and the day 15 = O then it may mean Holy Object. If we analyze the location of the SETI Project, “Ohio”, we get a sum of 47 which is the sum of the word for God in Spanish called “Dios”. The 77 from 1977 is the sum of the word “Christ” and the 1+9=10 or J for Jesus thus 1977 means Jesus Christ.

The 7=G and 2=B for possibly 7 year old or (God’s Bickers), the witness of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO. The frequency of the signal 1420.4556 MHZ could be summed up to be 1420 = 7 and .4556 = 20 or 7.2 for the length of the transmission or the street “Leweir”; the 7=G and 20=T meaning possibly (G)od’s (T)ransmission ; and the 7 could mean the age of the witness of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO with 20 meaning T for Testimony meaning 7 year old Testimony. The sum of 1420.4556 = 27 which is the sum of the words “Code”, “Job”, or “Race”; the “Code” could mean numerology taught by UFO spirits to the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness, “Job” could mean a Schizophrenic prophet like the Biblical “Job” and also like the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness; and “Race” could mean White, Hispanics, and Blacks which could mean WHB or the initials of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness. The race could mean the U.S. Presidential race phenomenon over 26 “twenty six years” (26=God) (1990-2016) since first UFO spirit contact whereby the initials WHB of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness was one or more of his initials in the President’s initials as a clue to the importance of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO testimony, analysis, theology, and Revelation. The frequency 1420 could mean 14=N, 20=T plus .4556 could mean DEEF for a message: “Noble Transmission” / “Divine Entity Eternal Friend” and a possible meaning in reverse “Feed The Needy” or “Feed Everybody End Death”. The 1420 could be look at as 1=A and 42=UFO and RVB (witness father) or Amen’s UFO. In addition, the .4556 could mean 1964 with the 55 meaning sum of the word “Heaven” and 5+5= 10=J for Jesus or 1+9 and the 6 and 4 is 64; the 1420 could mean 14+20 = 34, the sum of the word “Allah”. If you take 1420.4556 and add 14+20+20=54 for the sum of the words “Islam” and “Love”. Also, .4556 could mean 45=”God’s” and 56=”Disabled” and “friend” for a message “God’s Disabled Friend” meaning the schizophrenic witness of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO and the witness’ father who had lost an arm to cancer. Lastly .4556 could mean the 46 the sum of Hindu God of Heaven “Indra” with 55 sum of “Heaven” for Indra’s Heaven. The declination of the signal was J2000 Equinox of 26 57′ +-20′ which could mean 26 as sum of word “God” and 57 as sum of word “Moon” and “Mary” plus the birth year of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO witness; together may mean God of the “Moon of Memphis” UFO and Mary. If we add the 20′ to 57′ then we get 77′ and 77 is sum of word “Christ”; if we subtract 20′ from 57′ we get 37′ which is sum of the words “Like” and “Hell”. The signal nearest star was Tau Sagittarii which decodes with Tau=42 which is the sum of “UFO” and Sagittarii=113 which is the sum of “Judgments” for a message of “UFO Judgments”. A possible message of the signal is: (Jesus Christ of mercy and love wants you to be kind and go to heaven, not hell by UFO judgments.) This analysis strongly suggests that God using a possible UFO created by God was responsible for the signal and the decoded sum of the signal of 64 makes it a pointer to the 1964 “Moon of Memphis” UFO event of the God called “Amen”. This UFO probably has a Christ consciousness and contains the soul of Jesus and may be an UFO Heaven for the spirits and souls of good and kind life on Earth as well as Angels or extraterrestrials. The analysis also suggests that many of the world’s religions are respected and represented by the SETI Wow Signal. This radio signal helps to prove that the 1964 “Moon of Memphis” UFO was a solid object with radio capabilities, not a atmospheric plasma ball of light. UFOs can communicate with humanity and possibly can affect home radios.

    WOW.. the way i figured out the code it gave a direct reference to a book published in 1830. The Universal Technological Dictionary…. is that weird or what…


  9. Tom

    By the way… this took less than 5 minutes to figure out…


  10. Tom

    Like i said in my last two posts that were deleted by the powers that be.. i dont think this is all that difficult. Do you really think that an alien space craft would send a message from space and make it so difficult that our little pea brains couldnt figure it out??i think not..what i figured out of the code it gave a direct reference to a dictionary published in the 1800s The Universal Technological Dictionary…the rest is speculation and theory.
