Well, we're running out of _OUMUAMUA_ now, but look what just turned up in the splitter queue:

blc05_2bit_guppi_57977_49649_GJ144_0025

There's more of them there.

GJ144 is Epsilon Eridani

Please translate for those of us who don't understand the code.

Please translate for those of us who don't understand the code.

The GJ144 part of the file in question, about to be split, is Epsilon Eridani.

Other designations: Ran, 18 Eridani, BD -09°697, GCTP 742.00, GJ 144, HD 22049, HIP 16537, HR 1084, LHS 1557, SAO 130564, WDS 03330-0928.

You don't need to understand any code, I don't. Google is your friend. :-)

Putting GJ 144 into google gives you clues about which star it is.

Another example from a file in the splitter queue:
blc05_2bit_guppi_57976_02753_HIP74178_0013

Putting HIP74178 into Google tells us after a bit of sorting out crap results, that doesn't have anything to do with astronomy:

I can attest to the OP that this works. I do it all the time to see where certain catalog numbers and groups correspond to.

Fascinating. You realize, Tutankhamon, what you just did to the few remaining hours of sleep I still could count on ? Jokes aside, thanks.

Tell me more about it. The first thing that pops in my mind is the Voyager spacecrafts.

The signals are indeed from Voyager 1 out in interstellar space. Just another way for the project to verify the sensitivity of the receivers and signal processing checks.

I was exploring the matter when Keith posted his excellent reply. If you<re curious, all I can do now is share some pointers toward a previous Breakthrough Listen: Voyager 1 Observation, a 3d orbit diagram featuring the Solar System and showing the orbit of Voyager 1 relative to the Sun and the orbits of the major planets (the same here with a different tracking perspective), and the overall Voyager 1 Sky Charts and Coordinates, all mesmerizing stuf.

Edit: it appears Voyager 1 work units will be discussed in this thread.

The 3D orbit diagram is especially nice in illustrating that Voyager 1 was sent out of the solar system at almost a 90° angle to the system ecliptic. Hope everyone realizes that you can use your mouse in the diagram to change the viewing angle. One of the advantages is that it cleared the system halo sooner.
