Thank you for adding data with current levels of understanding, into the topic. In case anyone reading this missed it, due to focusing on a different part of life, space exploration and study free... we haven't been dealing with 9 planets for a long time now.

Where science sometimes fails permutation of possibility... Murphy's law doesn't.

Looks pretty elongated to be a moon... Not to mention brighter than the comet itself.

Those are radar images, so the usual photographic factors don't apply here. The brightness in radar images has to do with how rugged or uneven a surface is (the more rugged, the brighter). The enlogation might be due to its fast motion around the asteroid.

What the heck! I read your reply to me three times and still couldn't understand what you were saying, sorry.a reply to: BigBrotherDarkness

Sorry to have over complicated my reply needlessly. I was asking; what are the parallels between the book and this moon object that struck you as neat or interesting?... and said not only to yourself but to others, that the topic is pretty open ended to not worry about staying rigidly on topic.

as watching this Video that is Framed as Frame By Frame

It look as if The Object is Being Pulled to it ! as the Close to a Sphere Asteroid Rotates !!


all Legal Physics ...


I do NOT see it Orbiting from this Video ...

It's just a matter of perspective. For example, we see the Moon setting below the horizon, as if it were drawn down there instead of orbiting our planet in a more-or-less circular manner. Watch a video of the setting Moon as seen from the ISS, the motion will be identical to that asteroid footage.

Well is there any other Videos of this Object of this so called Natural Satellite going in a orbital manner around this SPHERICAL Asteroid ??

Well our moon is Tital Locked .. Right..

Tho NASA Says that it Does orbit ...


The 20 individual images used in the movie were generated from data collected at Goldstone on Jan. 26, 2015. They show the primary body is approximately 1,100 feet (325 meters) across and has a small moon approximately 230 feet (70 meters) across. In the near-Earth population, about 16 percent of asteroids that are about 655 feet (200 meters) or larger are a binary (the primary asteroid with a smaller asteroid moon orbiting it) or even triple systems (two moons). The resolution on the radar images is 13 feet (4 meters) per pixel.

Not from our (the Earth's) point of view, no. To get a different perspective, we'd have to launch a very powerful space telescope, or a big radar station, to a location in space where we could see that little moon's orbit face-on.

Why does one thing exclude the other? All moons orbit their planet (by definition), and all major moons in the Solar System are tidally locked. It means they constantly show the same side to their planet as they orbit it. Perhaps you meant "rotation" instead of "orbiting"?

Lots of asteroids have their own little moons, some even have two or three. From your own link: "In the near-Earth population, about 16 percent of asteroids that are about 655 feet (200 meters) or larger are binary or triple systems." That means they have one or two moons.

This is not news, but is very interesting nevertheless. en.wikipedia.org...

Yeah Most of the Average Elementary Student can tell you that ... on atilt axis that is ..

All im seeing in this """"" Framed BY FRAME botch together Video""""" is Object moving Towards The Asteroid Sphere either Going around or Landing on it I do not see a Pass Around.. I do see the Satellite object Move a Little to the Left ... But where is the Video Showing a Complete Around Orbit! ? and we have another SPHERICAL Asteroid Showing a Similar Object in its Path 1998QE2

Does the Asteroid "Minor Planet"

Show any Signs of this ? with this Object in Question ?




2)

Well Yeah most of them are Tital Locked ... Actual Moons to Actual Planets that is ..


3) are they Orbiting or Just Trailing in a Vortex manner ?


Kinda looks the Same... When you flip one of the Pictures





See the First 2 Pics in Asteroid 2004 BL86 Look at the big indentation "Dark Spot" just above the 2004 Numbers in the Pic ! Now look at the first Two Photos in the 2nd Pic of the 1998 QE2 Asteroid Looks as if its the Same Asteroid







NOW Lets See this In Reverse Shall We
