China's official science newspaper Science and Technology Daily published an article about its powerful Sky Eye telescope picking up signs of alien life. However, the article was reportedly taken down later.

The Independent reported that a team of researchers from Beijing Normal University were investigating the mysterious discovery further. “[There were] several cases of possible technological traces and extraterrestrial civilizations from outside the earth,” the publication reported quoting the science report.

“The possibility that the suspicious signal is some kind of radio interference is also very high, and it needs to be further confirmed and ruled out. This may be a long process,” Zhang Tonjie, chief scientist of the university’s extraterrestrial civilization was quoted saying.

The Time.com quoting Zhang said the team detected two sets of suspicious signals in 2020 while processing data collected in 2019, and found another suspicious signal in 2022 from observation data of exoplanet targets.

Sky Eye or the Five Hundred metre Aperture Spherical Telescope is a radio telescope located in Guizhou, southwest China.
