But a single observation is not sufficient to indicate anything. As every observation can include mistakes, repition or reproducability is important.
So the goal is now to find out if the observation was correct. And if we can't find any clear evidence that it was, we need to repeat the observation.

Basically, we can take this observation as a proof, we first have to prove the observation was correct.
If that all works out, then we have to come up with a theory that explains the new observation.
