I would have guessed the radiation (infrared) generated by the first human, or the first object created by man travelling its way round the orbit of the Sun (or the path round the galaxy).

Just to be pedantic.

I'd suggest the telephone (think about it!).

And what about - much earlier - the heliograph?

(Not quite what was meant, I think, but these do qualify!).
