This is going to be interesting to follow. At least something may be
detected that showed intelligent life, out there, may have existed
eons of years ago.

How good would a telescope have to be to detect light on the night side of a planet orbiting the nearest star with planets
My motto: Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow as it may not be required. This no longer applies in light of current events.

The search can be extended beyond the Solar System with next generation telescopes on the ground and in space, which would be capable of detecting phase modulation due to very strong artificial illumination on the night-side of planets as they orbit their parent stars.
Fair point Bob, we are talking next generation tescopes which haven't been designed/invented yet.
