According to Chinese scientists, the country’s “Sky Eye” telescope detected what could be evidence of an alien civilization. The large telescope is in China’s southwestern Guizhou province and has a diameter of 1,640 feet.
The now-deleted report said that the scientists found “several cases of possible technological traces and extraterrestrial civilizations from outside the Earth.”
The report cited Zhang Tonjie, 52, who is the chief scientist of an extraterrestrial civilization search team co-founded by Beijing Normal University, the National Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the University of California, Berkeley.
“Several narrow-band electromagnetic signals different from the past” were found in 2020 while processing data from 2019, according to Zhang, and another suspicious signal was detected in 2022.
However, he did note that the signals could have resulted from radio interference. “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 reportedly explained.
Zhang has previously been referred to as “China’s Top Alien Hunter.”
It is unclear why the report was removed. Despite the deletion, the supposed discovery has been widely discussed on social media.
