'A small asteroid has been discovered in an orbit around the sun that keeps it as a constant companion of Earth, and it will remain so for centuries to come.

As it orbits the sun, this new asteroid, designated 2016 HO3, appears to circle around Earth as well. It is too distant to be considered a true satellite of our planet, but it is the best and most stable example to date of a near-Earth companion, or "quasi-satellite."

Well what if it is not a rock. First we had another which left. Now we have this one, they are both good size for a ship although they for some reason don't know the size for sure yet.

"One other asteroid -- 2003 YN107 -- followed a similar orbital pattern for a while over 10 years ago, but it has since departed our vicinity. This new asteroid is much more locked onto us.

"Asteroid 2016 HO3 was first spotted on April 27, 2016, by the Pan-STARRS 1 asteroid survey telescope on Haleakala, Hawaii, operated by the University of Hawaii's Institute for Astronomy and funded by NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office. The size of this object has not yet been firmly established, but it is likely larger than 120 feet (40 meters) and smaller than 300 feet (100 meters)."

If they just found it I wonder how they determine this.

"Our calculations indicate 2016 HO3 has been a stable quasi-satellite of Earth for almost a century, and it will continue to follow this pattern as Earth's companion for centuries to come."


So say it were a ship, one came 10 years ago stayed a while in orbit of earth, it left, now another has come and is in orbit.
Probably picking up deer and antelope!


Maybe they are upset and been sent because our scientists have caused the Mandela effect all over the universe!


You just never know!

N/M.. the JPL link you have also has the video better demonstrating the orbit.👍

So the earth is NOT FLAT.

Youtube lied to me !!

I wonder if i can spot it at Cal state' observatory?
Probably not with all the radioactive air pollution in soCal

To make it clear regarding the thread title: this object doesn't orbit the Earth. It orbits the Sun locked in an orbital resonance with the Earth.

No it orbits the earth



Since 2016 HO3 loops around our planet

Your source:

As it orbits the sun, this new asteroid, designated 2016 HO3, appears to circle around Earth as well. It is too distant to be considered a true satellite of our planet, but it is the best and most stable example to date of a near-Earth companion, or "quasi-satellite."
www.jpl.nasa.gov...
 



A quasi-satellite's orbit around the Sun takes exactly the same time as the planet's, but has a different eccentricity (usually greater), as shown in the diagram on the right. When viewed from the perspective of the planet, the quasi-satellite will appear to travel in an oblong retrograde loop around the planet.

In contrast to true satellites, quasi-satellite orbits lie outside the planet's Hill sphere, and are unstable. Over time they tend to evolve to other types of resonant motion, where they no longer remain in the planet's neighbourhood, then possibly later move back to a quasi-satellite orbit, etc.
en.wikipedia.org...

The wobble of its actual orbit makes it appear to be in an Earth orbit. It isn't.

Did you watch the video of the orbit?
That makes it close enough for me.

It travels with us around the sun and circles the earth...



The asteroid, which was discovered in April, orbits around the Sun — and circles Earth in the process.

Even stranger than an actual noticeable orbit, they only just found it and it was lol there for the last 100 years!

Try this for a better idea of what the orbit actually looks like.

Not sure why that's strange. It's very small and very far away.

I like the language used, NASA says the last one "left". It didn't get thrown out of orbit or pushed away or knocked out ....it .."departed ".

They found this new one in April and yet already know it has been there a century. And yet they don't even yet know the size.

It is on a steady path with us and holding you ever heard of ...The Watchers

Got to hand it to you Phage, you keep on trying to keep it real. I just feel most these people are from secure team or others trying to part the ignorant of their money/click ads.

It is pretty obvious this orbits the SUN . Why would an alien "ship" waste its time in such an orbit? If they wanted to watch Earth there are better ways even with our limited tech... jeez...

Well, I am an amateur astronomer and spent 25 years researching UFO's. So when BS shows up it is kinda obvious.

I can agree with this "So when BS shows up it is kinda obvious."
I can spot it a mile off.

Jeez...bullies to.
I meant Bully for you Son..or Gal.
You know I started this thread in the gray area.

What's interesting is if its been there for 100 years and not noticed - makes you wonder what else might be out there that we haven't seen it yet.

Space overwhelms me because of its 360* and so alien because of my eyes facing front only. To spend your time looking at it knowing you are only seeing a sliver is mind-blowing.

Things that small and far away? Could be a bunch.

IF it were closer it would be called a moon.




So does this mean Earth has another moon? NASA says that because the asteroid is so far away it can't be considered a natural moon, or satellite. Instead, they're calling it a "quasi-satellite."


It CIRCLES the Earth circle=Orbit



A small asteroid has been found circling Earth as the two objects orbit the sun together.


But since it is a space ship it can go where it likes jeez
