To the delight of those trying to find life beyond our solar system, a team of astronomers has claimed to have picked up "strange signals" emanating from a star 11 light years away.

"We realised that there were some very peculiar signals in the 10-minute dynamic spectrum that we obtained from "Ross 128" (GJ 447), observed May 12", wrote professor Abel Mendez, planetary astrobiologist and director of the Planetary Habitability Laboratory at the University of Puerto Rico in a blog post.

Unusual signals emitted from a nearby star have been spotted by astronomers. This finding has been revealed to SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) - an alien-hunting authority. So far presence of any other planet near the star has not been found by the astronomers.

University of Puerto Rico astrobiologist Abel Mendez said that the star was observed for 10 minutes using the Arecibo Observatory - a massive radio telescope in a sink hole in Puerto Rico.

The signal is defined as "almost periodic" by Mendez.

As such, official alien hunters have been notified.

"The field of view of (Arecibo) is wide enough, so there is the possibility that the signals were caused not by the star but another object in the line of sight", Mendez said.

Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, told Business Insider that the group is "well aware of the signals".

The star will be furthered monitored by Mendez, he said adding that they could explain this odd phenomenon only if they detect similar signal.

'We believe that the signals are not local radio frequency interferences (RFI) since they are unique to Ross 128 and observations of other stars immediately before and after did not show anything similar'.
