Srange?
Maybe, but it needs to go through a lot of steps before it is confirmed as being Mr.Little Green Man.

Nothing at all "strange" in any of what you've posted, just a single peak, which needs to be correlated with other data from the same area of the sky, the same frequency etc before it can be considered even a little bit strange.

We all get them.

What happens next, is that the results are run through another process, which has not been working lately to shift out possible candidates.

Once we have identified a possible target, we take another data sample, analyze that, and see if it repeats.

The verification process for any given signal is very stringent.
The scientists running the project want to make sure we have something valid before we alert the world.
