HOUSTON — Astronomers are trying to figure out who's making all that racket out in the galaxy?

Researchers said space analysts have been picking up a strange radio signal from a distant star. They said the star is in the Hercules constellation about 95 light years away, but it seems it's message is getting across.

Some think it could be signs of life on another planet — an extraterrestrial being reaching out to touch someone.

Then again, researchers said the signal may just be some type of natural interference from cosmic or even terrestrial sources.

Astronomers plan to get together to discuss during a trip to Mexico in September.
