Suspected alien signal from space had earthly cause, Russian scientists say:

In the past weekend, reports said that in May 2015, a team of Russian astronomers using the RATAN-600 radio telescope had detected an intriguing radio signal coming from the vicinity of the star HD 164595 about 94 light-years from Earth.

The signal was consistent with something an alien civilization might produce, astronomers said — but they stressed that there was probably a more prosaic explanation.

"Subsequent processing and analysis of the signal revealed its most probable terrestrial origin," astronomer Yulia Sotnikova stated on August 31, 2016 by the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences. "It can be said with confidence that no sought-for signal has been detected yet."

The signal may have been caused by a Russian military satellite. Such a spacecraft was responsible for a similar detection during the Soviet period, Alexander Ipatov, director of the Institute of Applied Astronomy at the Russian Academy of Sciences, told the Russian news agency TASS.

The SETI Institute pointed the Allen Telescope Array, a network of radio dishes in northern California, at HD 164595 on August 28 and August 29, 2016, and found nothing.

UFOs reported in Berck, France:

The newspaper "La Voix du Nord said on their website that a tourist filmed "mysterious flying objects" in the mid-afternoon on 14 August 2016, in the Berckois sky at the Sternes.

Using his cell phone, the tourist "recorded the sequence." The newspaper wonders: "Optical illusion or unidentified flying object?"

Nothing more is known... and the web page disappeared.
