IF it's aliens, they are, right now, seeing us around 1,500 years ago. And they are 1,500 years ahead of what we're seeing. Which means it's possible that even if it was aliens they're not around anymore.

Earth in the year 534 definitely looks weird, it has lots of free oxygen in the atmosphere. It's just a year or two before this weird shit happened: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extreme_weather_events_of_535%E2%80%93536

Don't fucking judge me, I've got tentacles for a face.

I remember reading one of the books cited on that page (Catastrophe: A Quest for the Origins of the Modern World) when I was on holiday in Portugal.  It's one of those "interesting, but treat with caution" kind of books, that is almost certainly overselling it's central thesis but nevertheless probably isn't entirely incorrect either.  I do recommend it, if for no other reason than its riveting accounts of the various catastrophes and disasters of the time period.
