"Sometimes it seems to stay on, detectable for days or weeks at a time, and then other times it can come on and off in a single day, which is extremely fast for an astronomical object," Professor Murphy said.

Not only is the timing random, but the signal can vary in strength, becoming 100 times brighter in the radio spectrum.

Even more weirdly, the radio waves are aligned in one direction that rotates as the signal travels through the universe towards us.
