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

around this same time i saw an interesting object reddish in color moving mostly northward one night. do they mention if this object was visible to the naked eye. what i saw looked like a smudge moving across the sky. just a blurry reddish round object about 1/4 the size of a full moon if u count the whole blurred effect from it.

Indeed. This is what a phallic spaceship really looks like:

What size batteries does THAT take?

This comment is related my earlier, on page one, comments and has no bearing on any subsequent posts.

Most official reports say that the body is rotating about once every 7 hours. Astronomy defines an axis as the point through the center of the rotation. The official explanations don't tell us if the body is tumbling end over end on its short cross-section axis or if it is rotating along its center axis down it long length.

If the body is rotating end over end then it is unlikely that it is intelligently controlled. If it is rotating around a long centerline then it probably is intelligently controlled. It would be very unlikely that it would have derived a natural motion of that manner.

That's an interesting insight into what Phage was doing in the 70's

I remember reading a story about how there more Apollo missions than 17 but never publicly announced.
The story claimed there was a crashed ship on the dark side of the moon and that it was long.

"Mona Lisa" spaceship

It was an interesting read if anything.
The artists rendition of the asteroid reminded me of it.

I believe it is a hoax and this supports that.

I believe that the shape itself is responsible for it's arrival here.
It gives gravity a problem, so its mother system abandoned it

sorry posted my theory in the double post.

Highly-Elongated and totally metal. Sounds like me!

Rendezvous with Rama?




Solar System's First Interstellar Visitor Dazzles Scientists New data reveal first detected interstellar object to be a rocky, and up to one-quarter mile (400 meters) long and highly-elongated-perhaps 10 times as long as it is wide.


Little smaller than Rama, I think.

Looks like a Zentraedi battle frigate. Zentraedi ship

Sure it may be from an old anime, but oddly similar is shape.

From your Original Post..


“We had to act quickly,” explains team member Olivier Hainaut from ESO in Garching, Germany. “`Oumuamua had already passed its closest point to the Sun and was heading back into interstellar space.”

This was in September 2017...just 2 months ago. The object is traveling at 59,000mph. (Twice as fast as Apollo craft did to the Moon.)

It's interesting that an object travelling this "slowly" was able to pass within our orbit while headed towards the Sun, without being noticed. We didn't see it until it was easing its way back to interstellar space.

Maybe mankind should invest more into early warning systems and missiles that can destroy incoming bodies.

Good idea. The full science paper says the orbit approached from the other side of the sun and considering its small size it was only visible to the newly upgraded asteroid-hunting telescope network within 20 million miles of Earth. Five years ago, it wouldn't have been detected at all. Earlier estimates of hypothetical 'traffic' rates had suggested that such objects were continuously passing through the solar system at a low rate, on average there was about one such object within one AU of the sun at any given time, most all of those undetectable.

It was only by a fluke that this object, after one initial detection, was 'captured' by observations a few days earlier and later [allowing an orbit to be determined] -- since it was moving so much faster than the search target population of NEO asteroids. The peculiar trajectory was at an angle to Earth line-of-sight that its angular motion did not exceed the normal search zone for NEOs.

Also interesting -- the orbital eccentricity of about 1.2 is not surprising, significantly higher values were not expected for objects originating at stars moving along with the Sun in this spiral arm.

So to a large degree, analysis based on recent improvements in detection technology did indicate the likelihood that a visitor much like this might be detected sooner or later.

Nobody expected the shape, though -- which still is an estimate based on its light curve as it rotates.

So, Jim how odd is the shape and why is this a big deal?

Once i read cigar shaped, red, highly metallic...

I could literally smell the UFO community's excitement.

Thankyou for explaining the trajectory and other properties. Now I understand why we were lucky to see this object at all. I was under the (mistaken) impression that it passed by Earth on it's way to the Sun and during its departure.

If the object would have followed that route, scientists would most likely have been able to get a much better/longer observation.

It's exciting to know that not everything is space is roundish!

Don't worry everyone it's just a Space Dragon poop hence the shape so it's not from Uranus but another creatures.

Just as well it didn't head for Earth as well all know poop doesn't burn.

The D G does not a bad write up. 400 meters long x 40m approx.


"What a fascinating discovery this is!" said Paul Chodas, manager of the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "It's a strange visitor from a faraway star system, shaped like nothing we've ever seen in our own solar system neighborhood." Astronomers recently scrambled to observe an intriguing asteroid that zipped through the solar system on a steep trajectory from interstellar space-the first confirmed object from another star. Now, new data reveal the interstellar interloper to be a rocky, cigar-shaped object with a somewhat reddish hue. The asteroid, named 'Oumuamua by its discoverers, is up to one-quarter mile (400 meters) long and highly-elongated-perhaps 10 times as long as it is wide. That aspect ratio is greater than that of any asteroid or comet observed in our solar system to date. While its elongated shape is quite surprising, and unlike asteroids seen in our solar system, it may provide new clues into how other solar systems formed. The observations and analyses were funded in part by NASA and appear in the Nov. 20 issue of the journal Nature. They suggest this unusual object had been wandering through the Milky Way, unattached to any star system, for hundreds of millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. "For decades we've theorized that such interstellar objects are out there, and now - for the first time - we have direct evidence they exist," said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. "This history-making discovery is opening a new window to study formation of solar systems beyond our own."

There are some accounts now that the light curve may actually be indicative of a binary object, i.e. two asteroids gravitationally locked, i.e. an asteroid and a moon. Not that uncommon of a thing, But again, if its a roughly cylindrical object, that's just plain weird.

It's a lamp post poo from an interstellar space whale, must be lots of fibre out there in the space between.
