There was a guarded response from SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) officials this evening after the Hubble telescope successfully picked up what appear to be rabbits grazing in Saturn's ring, but one cautiously optimistic onlooker told us that this time they really think they've struck gold.
The event occurred yesterday evening at 18:20:39 GMT but it wasn't until the data had been analysed that the earth-shattering news was released.
"Our attention was initially drawn to this event when the motion sensory software picked up signs of independent motion right there in Saturn's ring," a technician told us. "When we zoomed in and enhanced the images we were blown away. Right there before our very eyes was a bunch of cute ickle bunny wabbits a grazing and a frolicking right there in Saturn's big old ring."
Although it is not quite established with any certainty how the ickle wabbits got to the ring of Saturn, scientists think that their presence is an anomaly.
Either that or observers have been taking too many drugs.
More as we get it.
