WOW! Recent extra-solar passerby -- a 'highly-elongated', maybe 'high-metal-content' object.

Rendezvous with Rama comes to mind by Arthur C. Clark. It's a good read, and explains this very instance. They thought the cigar shaped craft was a metal rich asteroid, until they found otherwise. It was also a strange interstellar object traveling into our solar system. It also shot back out using the sun to refuel, and slingshot. The only difference we sent someone to it in the book. They do everything in threes so I guess we will know in about 60 years.

Man, I am just totally stunned by this. It is just beyond weird that this thing just happens to be shaped, LIKE A SPACESHIP. There I said it. Had to get that out. Sorry. It looks like either a space ship or a giant doobie. Either possibility is terrifying. Not saying nature cant spit out an asteroid shaped like this, but how many asteroids have we ever seen shaped like a huge cigar?

It's very frustrating that we're still so primitive, that we can't fly out and look at things like this.

How many more decades will it take before we're able to go investigate an object in our own solar system.. like we send Jets up to investigate UFOs now?

If it a probe, expect aliens in 50, 60 years.

Wonder if the surface is smooth or rough because they might be a hint at it's origin.

This is basically one way 'first contact' might look. So it is truly exciting, and fun to enjoy the common well-deserved excitement.

One point -- nobody's keeping anything secret, apparently, although they could have. Unless there have been radio intercepts, or laser beam flashes. It might be prudent to broaden the observation instrumentation array just in case there were artificial signals that normal astronomical searching wouldn't look for.

Just in case.

How likely would it be that something randomly passing through the solar system would get so close to the sun?

OR -- are only those passers-by getting that close bright enough to be noticed by existing sky surveys?

To find the farther-out and dimmer ones, what wide-field search strategy would be productive, up to and including Hubble?

ADD -- Many of these questions are directly addressed here:

Nah.. It's an old rocked tumbling through space and its also red iron made Jim..


Wonder who put that there ?

Although one starts to think , could it be possible that monolithic structures that have supposedly found on moons like on one of the moons of Mars could actually be things like these?

Maybe it has something to do with the monolith on moon and mars that Buzz Aldrin talked about.

Probably not:

"It's a big, big, tall rock. Now I could say it looks like maybe a crude construction device by some creatures who practiced on Phobos and then landed in Egypt and built the pyramids. I don't really believe that. But some people are liable to think that".

Hopefully it's a ship full of benevolent beings that free humanity from the shackles of Oligarchy.

If we could capture something like that, it would make a great habitat /generational space station.

Centrifical force could be applied after chipping away at it until you had an evenly distributed mass.

Thats a cool looking rock.

Obelisk station.

The descriptions reminds me of this.



If we are going to go with a space ship lets go all in.

That looks like the Millennium Falcon that Hans Solo flew in Star Wars.

I say that because Iapetus looks like the Death Star..

Well one works now.
The bottom one was google search criteria, not a url.

Weryk and fellow Institute for Astronomy researcher Marco Micheli realised it was going extremely fast (with enough speed to avoid being captured by the Sun's gravitational pull) and was on a very eccentric trajectory taking it out of our Solar System.


If it's not alien , how could this rock managed to pull an elliptical trajectory without being captured by the Sun's gravitational pull?

It followed an elliptical (hyperbolic, actually) path precisely because of the Sun's gravitational pull. If not for that it would have gone straight in and straight back out.

Looks like the "ship" on the moon that the alleged Apollo 20 went to, to scoop up the alleged "Mona Lisa" ancient human pilot.

To be fair, any long, skinny, vaguely phallic rock will look like that.

Very interesting, none the less, as it isn't the usual roundish clump of space matter.

Too bad we can't cruise and scope it out... or can we? (mwa-ha-ha)

Meh, if artificial, it's probably looking for dinner, knowing how life is on Earth... maybe better to turn off the lights and wait for it to pass.
