Radio signals are coming from a mysterious object located in space at a distance of 4000 light years from Earth. These radio signals are coming every 18 minutes, due to which scientists are surprised. These are radio signals that scientists have never seen before. Scientists say that it could be a neutron star or it could be the remnant of a white star whose magnetic field is very strong or it could be something completely different from it.

This space object was first seen in the year 2018 in the month of March. It is emitting a radio signal once in every hour. When it emits a radio signal, it becomes the brightest radio wave easily visible from Earth. It looks like a celestial light house in a way. In the investigation of scientists, it has been found that it is releasing a large amount of energy.

This scary space object is very close to the earth
A team of researchers led by Australian scientist Dr Natasha Hurley Walker has discovered this very mysterious object. His team was making a map of the radio waves present in the universe, during which they found this mysterious object. Dr Natasha said, ‘During our monitoring, this object sometimes appears and then disappears. This is completely unexpected. Very scary for an astronomer because nothing like this had been seen in space.’

Doctor Natasha said, ‘It is very close to our earth which is only 4000 light years away. It is right behind our galaxy. He said it corresponds to an ‘ultra long period magnetar’. He said that someone expected it to be discovered directly because we had no idea that it would be so bright. This object is converting magnetic energy into radio waves in a very effective way that has not been seen before in any other object. This research is published in the journal Nature.
