The signal, considered the best evidence of the existence of alien technology, turned out to be a hindrance from human technology

In 2019, scientists at the Parks Observatory in Australia discovered an unusual signal from the Proxima Centauri system, dubbed Breakthrough Listen Candidate 1, or simply BLC1.

The Breakthrough Listen project has carefully studied the unusual beam of radio waves and concluded that the strange signal is just interference from our own radio technology.
The BLC1 signal was only detected when the telescope was pointed towards Proxima Centauri.
The researchers concluded that this is likely a coincidence, and the signal was most likely created by two interfering radio transmitters created by human hands near the observatory.
