Sorry to see you go. It should be a rule that they have to tell you why you're banned.


I know.. but asking won't help, and complaining wont either. Just move on...

we don't talk about banned members either, so as long as someone gets to see me say goodbye.

hooroo you fine folk.

Nope! It isn't my business, and I don't talk to that person.
Sorry to see you go!

Maybe it can be towed into a closer orbit to Earth and mined if it is made of gold or silver or other metal worth a lot of $$$.

Well we done it in 1969.

It's not like the thing is tiny, we manage to dock shuttles and space capsules with the ISS.

Certainly not beyond the realms of possibility dependent again on the composition of the thing.

Don't take it so personally dude/dudette.
You aren't the only one who asked, and you must admit the majority of the time it IS because someone is too lazy to read the article. Not saying YOU and not saying ALL- just a heck of a lot.

I recall reading about this a while back and the scientists speculated that this type of thing happens often (on astronomical timescales). The planets gain temporary satellites for a relatively short time, but their unstable orbits result in them dropping back off eventually. A number of the moons of the outer planets may be temporary in this way.

I hope Luna doesn't find out about this.

Neat article.


Yep. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

It's pretty cool how the article even refers to this new quasi moon as a mistress. And the name of it is "2016 HO3" Makes me think this young lady was the 3rd ho of 2016.

Mother Earth has one hell of a libido!

Hard to figure how they would know how long it's been there unless they knew about it all along and just didn't want to freak people out.

Probably shouldn't have taken a trip through the Whirlpool galaxy- Unless it got caught in the Maytag one as well.

I read about this before. I also read about some sort of dense asteroid that has a horseshoe orbit with the earth. It goes the same way earth goes then comes close to earth and reverses it's orbit and goes the other way making a sort of horseshoe shape

Yes. One million is a bit low.

It should be one billion dollars. Then all his henchmen can stop looking so uncomfortable.
