Located in the constellation of Virgo, Ross 128 is a red dwarf star with no known planets surrounding it. Since it is 10.89 light years from Earth, Ross 128 is not visible to the naked eye, but researchers have been watching it since 1926, when it was discovered by astronomer Frank Elmore Ross.

In mid-May, Ross 128 had a brief turn in the worldwide spotlight after astronomers reported strange signals coming from the star. At the time, experts were unable to definitively state that the signals weren’t a sign of alien activity, although researchers continued to search for the root cause. By late July, though, the cause had finally been determined, to the disappointment of those who search for signs of extraterrestrial life.
