Geller acknowledged that the “arrival” will occur any time after scientists discover a massive energy source 4,000 light-years away.
Geller, who owns a private island in the Firth of Forth, an estuary in the UK, told his followers he had no doubt the discovery was related to extraterrestrial intelligence.
And the 75-year-old psychic urged experts in Washington DC and the rest of humanity to expect the unexpected.
“A team mapping radio waves in the universe has discovered something unusual that releases a giant burst of energy three times an hour and is unlike anything astronomers have seen before ,” Geller announced on Instagram.
“I have no doubt that this is linked to extraterrestrial intelligence far superior to our own. Start decrypting your messages! They are preparing us for a massive landing soon!”
As reported by various media outlets, the scientists said they had never seen anything like the new space phenomenon before.
At first they thought it might be a neutron star or white dwarf (collapsing star cores) with an ultra-strong magnetic field known as a ‘magnetar’.
The astrophysicist Dr. Natasha Hurley-Walker of Curtin University in Australia said that this object appeared and disappeared for a few hours during the observations.
“This was completely unexpected ,” said Dr. Hurley-Walker. “It was a little scary for an astronomer because there’s nothing known in the sky that does that. And it’s very close to us, about 4,000 light-years away. It’s in our galactic backyard.”
However, in his opinion, he thinks it could be an ‘ultra-long period magnetar’, a type of slowly rotating neutron star that has been theoretically predicted.
But he also acknowledged that no one expected to directly detect one like this because they didn’t expect it to be that bright.
He further added that it is somehow converting magnetic energy into radio waves far more effectively than anything they have seen before.
