We report on a search for the presence of signals from extraterrestrial intelligence in the direction of the star system KIC 8462852. Observations were made at radio frequencies between 1 and 10 GHz using the Allen Telescope Array. No narrowband radio signals were found at a level of 180–300 Jy in a 1 Hz channel, or medium band signals above 10 Jy in a 100 kHz channel. 

A SEARCH FOR BRIEF OPTICAL FLASHES ASSOCIATED WITH THE SETI TARGET KIC 8462852

The F-type star KIC 8462852 has recently been identified as an exceptional target for search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) observations. We describe an analysis methodology for optical

SETI OBSERVATIONS OF EXOPLANETS WITH THE ALLEN TELESCOPE ARRAY

We report radio SETI observations on a large number of known exoplanets and other nearby star systems using the Allen Telescope Array (ATA). Observations were made over about 19000 hr from 2009 May

Optical SETI Observations of the Anomalous Star KIC 8462852

To explore the hypothesis that KIC 8462852's aperiodic dimming is caused by artificial megastructures in orbit, rather than a natural cause such as cometary fragments in a highly elliptical orbit, we

The Application of Autocorrelation SETI Search Techniques in an ATA Survey

We report a novel radio autocorrelation search for extraterrestrial intelligence. For selected frequencies across the terrestrial microwave window (1–10 GHz), observations were conducted at the Allen

An ATA Search for a Repetition of the Wow Signal

The Allen Telescope Array was used to search for signals with characteristics similar to the “Wow” signal, the best candidate for an extraterrestrial radio signal found during Ohio State University’s

A Search for Laser Emission with Megawatt Thresholds from 5600 FGKM Stars

We searched high-resolution spectra of 5600 nearby stars for emission lines that are both inconsistent with a natural origin and unresolved spatially, as would be expected from extraterrestrial

The Stability of F-star Brightness on Century Timescales

The century-long photometric record of the DASCH project provides a unique window into the variability of stars normally considered to be photometrically inactive. In this paper, we look for

Detection of a repeated transit signature in the light curve of the enigma star KIC 8462852: A possible 928-day period

As revealed by its peculiar Kepler light curve, the enigmatic star KIC 8462852 undergoes short and deep flux dimmings at a priori unrelated epochs. This star presents nonetheless all other

In 1977 a search for extraterrestrial intelligence at the Ohio State University Radio Observatory recorded a strong, narrowband, and apparently intermittent emission near the 21 cm hydrogen line. The

Narrow polarized components in the OH 1612-MHz maser emission from supergiant OH-IR sources.

High-resolution OH 1612-MHz spectra are presented of the supergiant OH-IR sources VY CMa, VX Sgr, IRC 10420 and NML Cyg, showing the presence of magnetic fields strong enough to influence the outflow from the stars, and may help to explain some of the asymmetries which are seen in their circumstellar envelopes.
