This Is What Aliens Look Like

Or their signals anyway.

It's a graph; the x axis is time, the y axis is frequency. The dots are background noise, but that big line is a signal. There's a slight but actual chance it really is a signal from extraterrestrial sources, more likely it is a glitchy GPS satellite.

The picture and the explanation are from APOD. I am merely the humble messenger.

Looks like my snowy/frosty window.. with one ultra-long, skinny icicle.

It does look like a snowy night, Hil, with a weird blue sky.
