Possible Extra-terrestrial Signal Discovered

SETI Astronomers have pointed their instruments on a star  94 light (A light-year is apx 6 trillion miles) years from Earth after a very strong signal was detected by a Russian telescope.

An international team of researchers is now examining the radio signal described in a paper by Italian astronomer Claudio Maccone as a "strong candidate for SETI" -- in the hopes of determining its origin.

Astronomer Douglas Vakoch notes that The signal is intriguing, because it comes from the vicinity of a sun-like star, and if it's artificial, its strength is great enough that it was clearly made by a civilization with capabilities beyond those of humankind. 

Thanks to listener Barry for the heads up URL HERE   and check the url for type 2  civilizations and Dyson spheres.

I hate to be the first to say so, but a light year is almost six TRILLION miles. Only missed it by three orders of magnitude.
