Seals on the wind

Woke up to the sound of seals this morning, which inspired a bizarre dream in which all the dishes in the Array were giant elephant seal heads. The heads remained quiet and still until, suddenly, they started barking and warbling like crazy. Moments later, they stopped and closed their eyes. In my hands I found an old cassette recorder which had been recording the entire event. I took the cassette tape and fed it to another elephant seal who had a keyboard for a face. He chewed the tape up in his big, sloppy mouth, sat quietly for a minute, then burped up a crumpled, wet, color printout.

Picking up the paper, I  flattened it out to reveal a picture of an alien constellation, the brightest stars forming a giant, silvery “ネ”.

Somebody analyze that one for me.
