These five lagoglyphic messages were transmitted towards the Lepus Constellation (below Orion) on March 13, 2009 from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Based upon its stellar characteristics and distance from Earth, Gamma Leporis (part of the constellation Lepus) is considered a high-priority target for NASA's Terrestrial Planet Finder mission. The transmission was accomplished through satellite broadcasting equipment and a parabolic dish antenna.
Lepus Constellation [Gamma Leporis star] is 29 light-years from Earth. Kac's messages will arive in 2038.
