Radio Signals from Proxima Centauri

Radio Signals from Proxima Centauri

Parke Radio Telescope detected unnatural signals from the region around Proxima Centauri on April 29 2019. By Allison Kubo HutchisonScientists at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) have detected a narrow band of radio signals coming from a narrow area around Proxima Centauri, our nearest neighbor star at 4.2465 light-years away. Radio signals are naturally produced by various stellar and planetary bodies due including our sun and Jupiter however these occur over a broadband of frequencies. A human-made signal from a satellite in the same vicinity of the sky as Proxima Centauri could have produced the tone. However, it was observed using the Parkes radio telescope in Australia which is far south from the ecliptic where the majority of the satellite orbit.
