    Did Russian's detect ET SIgnal?

    A year later, and SETI is just finding out about it? It will be interesting to see if SETI can locate the signal, on a narrower bandwidth.
    Alien life, or noise? Russian telescope detects 'strong signal' from sun-like star
    by: The Guardian

    As David Bowie might have sung: is there life on HD164595b?

    A Russian radio telescope scanning the skies has observed “a strong signal” from a nearby star, HD164595, in the constellation Hercules. The star is a scant 95 light years away and 99% of the size of Earth’s own sun. It has at least one planet, HD164595b, which is about the size of Neptune and has a 40-day year.

    Seth Shostak of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (Seti) in Mountain View, California, told the Guardian he was shocked to have learned of the discovery only now – the readings from Russian radio telescope Ratan-600, Shostak said, were taken a year ago.

    Seti, a private not-for-profit organization, searches the skies for alien life and has been underwritten by US government divisions as diverse as Nasa and the Department of Energy. Operated by the Russian Academy of Sciences, Ratan-600’s primary area of focus is monitoring the sun, though it has contributed to Seti’s work.

    The news came to international attention on Saturday through Claudio Maccone of the University of Turin in Italy, who attended a talk by the scientists who recorded the signal on 15 May 2015. Maccone passed data from the presentation to the science and science-fiction writer Paul Gilster, who maintains a blog about interstellar exploration called Centauri Dreams.

    “Could it be an ET?” asked Shostak rhetorically. “Of course, but [Ratan-600] didn’t have a receiver that has any spectral resolution.” The receiver on the Russian radio telescope is very wide, which aids it in its primary mission of monitoring solar activity but also means that, like a terrestrial radio receiving a news station, rock’n’roll station and country station at the same time, it is difficult to discern which band is broadcasting at which frequency. “They have a receiver that would swallow a big chunk of the radio dial at once,” Shostak said.

    Seti will turn there attention to in now because of it becoming public now. But they don't scan all the frequency's that could be coming from there. They have a set of frequency's they look at only. In the hydrogen atom frequency. Strange. We send out UHF and VHF tv signal's all the time. And many others. They need to look at these also, but they wont. Seth is always right and we are all wrong.

    Interference from spy satellite is what gave those readings.

    That's one possibility. But I can't think why the Russians would announce the discovery.
    Or why SETI would bother following up. Not like Spy Satellites existence is a big secret. Pentagon is probably on SETI speed dial to confirm/eliminate false (non-ET origins) signals.

    Yes, also they have been looking for the signal to repeat itself since May. If it was a satellite, shouldn't it be repeating the same signal?

    I don't trust anything Russia says

    So it's "probably a Russian Military satellite"?
    Data was from last year.... took this long to sort it out?
    Talk about one (Russian) hand not knowing what the other is doing. 😛
    That's disappointing.
