signal spikes emitting from a 65 billion year-old star

Wut?

Basically we're seeing radio signals from that one particular star, and in order for anything that distant to be noticeable it either has to be some sort of unexplained natural phenomenon (which is much more likely) or its being transmitted by something very very very big with a LOT of energy. Enough energy that it's worth looking very closely to determine exactly what's going on there.

Yeah, I read another article explaining this away as most likely a natural phenomena, but I was more confused by the '65 Billion year old star' quote. Makes me doubt the quality of this article.

Crazy stuff. I really wish the article, or any article, would go into detail on the potential natural causes for this. If this signal did come from the star system HD164595, which is 95 light years away, it would have to have from an incredibly powerful emitter if it was aimed directly at us. If it wasn't aimed specifically at us, the emitter would have to be many magnitudes more powerful - far greater than energy requirements than the entirety of humanity can currently muster.

What a bizarrely wonderful time we live in. The birth of the internet, the birth of automation, the birth of a multiplanetary civilization, and all sorts of bizarre and interesting astronomical phenomena coming our way at a breakneck pace. Feels surreal.

Can anyone tell me if there's a significant difference between this type of signal and the Wow! signal?
