Astronomers were on a celestial fishing expedition for pulsing neutron stars and other radio bursts when they found something unexpected in archived sky sweeps conducted by the Parkes radio telescope in New South Wales, Australia.The powerful signal, which lasted for just milliseconds, could have been a fluke, but then the team found three more equally energetic transient flashes all far removed from the galactic plane and coming from different points in the sky.Analysis later indicated that, unlike most cosmic radio signals that originate in the Milky Way or a nearby neighbor galaxy, these four seem to have come from beyond.PHOTOS: Cosmic Hotshots from Keck ObservatoryWhatever triggered the bursts has come and gone. The signals, detected between February 2011 and January 2012, were one-time events so little follow-up work can be done.What is known is that in just a few milliseconds, each of the signals released about as much energy as the sun emits in 300,000 years.

The physical universe is filled with billions of galaxies each of which accumulates matter at their cores which occasionally explodes and gives off these massive energy bursts and radio signals. I believe it is these occasional outbursts of these individual galaxies of the billions of galaxies which surround us that is being recorded. One galaxy speaking to all others, to communicate its existence to the rest of the flock, as it flies along in the universe of eternity with its fellow travelers.  -- J.E. Ante
