Is Columbus home to Bigfoot? Are aliens roaming our skies? Do spirits haunt the grounds beneath us? If you ask this online study, the answer is a resounding probably.

According to Lawn Love, an online yard care service provider, Columbus was ranked No. 15 in the US for paranormal activity. This had us wondering: did we miss something major?

It turns out we did, and it’s because it happened nearly 50 years ago. It’s the “WOW!” signal printout + it’s equally spooky as it is interesting.

In 1977, OSU researchers recorded a never-before-seen signal from space. The signal was so odd, then-researcher Dr. Jerry Ehman circled the signal and wrote, “WOW!” in red ink next to it. Experts widely consider this our first-ever contact with aliens as it has never been replicated since that fateful day. Though this has been disputed.

We can’t help but wonder: what were they trying to tell us?
