The Big Ear was a radio telescope in Ohio from 1963 to 1998. It was part of The Ohio State University's Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) project. [1]

On August 15, 1977, The Big Ear recorded a possible extraterrestrial radio signal was received from the portion of the sky that the telescope was aimed at.[1] This event is known as Wow! signal, so named for the notation made by a volunteer at the site on the date of the event. [1]
