A little bit of spice to flavor the pot.
Little known to the people of Earth. Space has a vast array of otherworldly beings that exist within it. One such thing is the interstellar owl. For a while, it has gone unknown for many light years. It is on extremely rare occurrences that it's presence can even be picked up. But it is during certain points in the year that it's mating call can be picked up some unsuspecting astronauts who are within range of it. It has confused and even frightened these space pioneers with it's haunting call throughout the vast space it claims as it's territory. It is these rare occurrences that an astronaut may be serenaded by an interstellar owl seeking a mate.
