Astronomerssay they've detected "strange signals" coming from thedirection of a small, dim star located about 11 light-years fromEarth.

Researcherspicked up the mysterious signals on May 12 using the Arecibo Observatory, a huge radio telescope built inside of a Puerto Ricansinkhole.
Theradio signals appear to be coming from Ross 128.

 AbelMéndez, an astrobiologist at the University of Puerto Rico atArecibo, said it's extremely unlikely that intelligent extraterrestrial lifeis responsible, but noted that the possibility can't yet be ruledout.
