In the year 2020, a group of Australian scientists detected radio waves coming from the Centre of the Milky Way Galaxy. These six recorded signals were a strange phenomenon but, out of nowhere, it seemed to just disappear.
Until February of this year, no one has detected these strange signals. When the new signals began to occur again all of the highest-powered telescopes were pointed in its direction in the hope to discover something amazing. What they uncovered was beyond amazing. Using different radio lengths they were unable to detect any other signal. This meant that the object emitting these radio waves was not a star that they at least understood. A series of other observations such as extreme flares with extreme reduction indicates it is a very small object.
The thing that is so amazing about this phenomenon is that nothing that we know of in this entire universe matches the traits of this object. So, is it a new type of star or black hole that we have never encountered or is it a civilization sending out messages in hopes of contacting another form of life. Share your thoughts below.
