'Asteroid' spotted from beyond Solar System...

Recommended Posts

An object that flew past Earth may have originated from beyond our Solar System - Sky at Night report...

if so, this could be a first. It could be a comet or asteroid, approx 400m across...

The trajectory is quite interesting, it came into our solar system from almost above the ecliptic...

It's only a matter of time, there's a few snook by now, a couple of years ago a large one came between us and the Moon, the Radar picked it up but visually it was virtually invisible as it was nearly black.
