for over an hour, two shapes have been alternating on this red graph: one is a large spike towards the right side surrounded by much lower levels across the graph. the other is three spikes , evenly spaced, near the same part of the graph as the single spike, and instead of being all red their tips are green.

First of all, what does the red graph represent? (frequency, power, what?)

Secondly, what could these shapes mean?

I couldn't find another place to post this, so I hope someone finds it.

I just installed SETI@home today, so I don't know enough about the system to determine this artifact's origin, whether it be a problem with the information my computer received or even a problem with my computer.

Did you already read About The SETI@home Screensaver, especially the part about Data Analysis?
