Another one for the Astronomer types

Since 1998, astrophysicists at Australia's Parkes Observatory have been detecting mysterious bursts of radio waves (named "perytons") that seemed to emanate from all parts of the sky. They lasted for just fractions of a second and happened once or twice a year.  (. . .)

Most believed they came from somewhere quite nearby (perhaps resulting from lightning strikes), but the bursts had some characteristics that made it seem like they'd traveled millions of light-years from distant galaxies or other astronomical objects.

Turned out that after 17 years of study, it was some doofus opening the microwave oven while it was running.
