Notice the chronology:
August 15, 1977: Just before midnight, the "Wow!" signal was received at Ohio State's Big Ear radio telescope (which was dismantled and turned into a golf course in 1998). The "Wow!" signal is the most famous radio signal ever considered a candidate transmission from extraterrestrial intelligence: you know, aliens. It was named the "Wow!" signal since Jerry Ehman, the undergraduate at the time who was watching the telescope that night, scribbled "Wow!" on the old-style stripchart computer printout.
August 16, 1977: Elvis Presley died.
August 20, 1977: Voyager 2, which became the third spacecraft to fly by the planets Jupiter and Saturn and so far the only spacecraft ever to fly by the planets Uranus and Neptune, was launched.
All are well-documented facts, not "just your opinion." You can look them up.
