Usually, these weird, unexplained signals are detected only after the fact, when astronomers notice out-of-place spikes in their data — sometimes years after the incident. The signals have complex, mysterious structures, patterns of peaks and valleys in radio waves that play out in just milliseconds. That's not the sort of signal astronomers expect to come from a simple explosion, or any other one of the standard events known to scatter spikes of electromagnetic energy across space. Astronomers call these strange signals fast radio bursts (FRBs). Ever since the first one was uncovered in 2007, using data recorded in 2001, there's been an ongoing effort to pin down their source. But FRBs arrive at random times and places, and existing human technology and observation methods aren't well-primed to spot these signals.

Hmmm.... that's a new one to me. One would guess possible electromagnetic discharges from mantle to surface differences in charge.

Only reason I say this is the lack of them at the equator. I know that earth itself has been known to emit rapid intense flashes of energy, but not sure where or why.

Either that or they may be caused by the "blinking stars" we sometimes see. Not sure. Very very interesting.
