So Seth did an AMA on reddit yesterday, here's the link:

I liked what Dr. Shostak said here:
When Uranus was discovered, it turned out that it had been seen many times before, but not recognized as a new planet. So I figure it's probably a reasonable possibility that, once we have a discovery, we'll find out that something was in the data all along ... it just happens.
