Sadly, the WOW signal may not be as exciting as was once thought:

New models suggest that the signal could have been caused by two recently discovered comets passing in front of the telescope.

fake news 😂😂

A spokesperson from the OSU Radio Observatory, where the Wow! signal was detected, has reached out to express skepticism of this discovery. Specifically, the spokesperson notes that both comet 266P and P/2008 were too far away to have caused the signal, and that there's no prior evidence suggesting that comets can create the type of signal spotted in 1977. In particular, the Wow! signal only lasted for a little over a minute, which would be unusual for a comet.

Will be interesting to see what the truth is once they figure it out.
