China’s Sky Eye Telescope May Have Picked-Up Signals From Aliens

China is claiming that its enormous “Sky Eye” telescope may have picked up trace signals from a distant alien civilization, according to a recently posted and subsequently deleted report by Chinese scientists.

The signals were picked up by China’s Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope, nicknamed “Sky Eye”, which is the largest radio telescope in the world.

As the signals are narrow-band radio waves typically only used by human aircraft and satellites, they could have been produced by alien technology. However, the scientists say their findings are preliminary and should be taken with caution until the analysis is complete.

The signals aren’t the first time that scientists have been baffled by radio waves from deep space. In August 1977, a SETI search performed by the Ohio State University’s Big Ear telescope picked up an incredibly strong, minute-long, electromagnetic burst that flared at a frequency scientists suspected could be used by alien civilizations.

Chinese astronomers are keen to rule out radio interference because it has famously waylaid alien-hunting scientists in the recent past.
