In 1977, the “Wow! Signal” event occurred when a radio signal was received from deep space.
The 8220;Wow! Signal” event occurred at Ohio State University where its radio telescope, The Big Ear, received the signal. The event got its name from the notation made by a volunteer on the project. The Big Ear was the size of three football fields and was the longest-running SETI (Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence) project entered into the Guinness Book of Records.
