The report also noted that they observed another suspicious signal in 2022.
Zhang Tonjie, chief scientist of an extraterrestrial civilization search team said that China’s Sky Eye is extremely sensitive in the low-frequency radio band and plays a critical role in the search for alien civilizations.
In the report, he added that the signals may be “some kind of radio interference” that requires further investigation.
According to Bloomberg the newspaper who also reported the article online mysteriously deleted the report and posts about the discovery.
It is not clear why the story was removed, however it had already picked up momentum on Chinese social media site Weibo.
