Star and Flag to try to keep this thread alive (why do some of the best threads go to sleep!)
What I find interesting is that indeed this object has a most unusual and 'earth like' orbit.
A couple of links, and from even the most casual investigation one is left somewhat dumbfounded that this has not been heavily discussed, a quick
search here on ATS shows mention of VG1991 in a few threads, but nothing heavy (at least not so far).
A quick Google brings up some impressive results namely:
This email by Jim Scotti (1996)... worth a look (his email is there too!)
This fact sheet on a bunch of near earth objects:
And as we see..VG1991 has a very earth like orbit (1.04 years to orbit... )
1991 VG 1991 Dec 05 0.0031 28.4 9 1.04 1.027 0.049 1.4 1991 VG
And even on Wikipedia the post describes alien possibilities... and hasn't seemingly caused anyone to bat an eyelid!
People with an understanding of orbits, space etc will make much more sense of this than most here (including myself!) however it seems the general
consensus that a small object in this orbit would not last long at all either crashing into earth or being pushed out of its orbit...
Please people read this type of thread over the tinfoil / tiny dots in the night sky threads
