What’s even more surprising is that it also came out of the middle of nowhere, and astrophysicists have no idea how far it is; they know it can’t be closer than 130 light-years and further than 11 billion light-years. The object just wasn’t there before, it is now, and it doesn’t behave in any known way, making us arrive at one simple conclusion, that they have no idea what it is.

What could it be?
Travellers from another dimension?...

That is pretty interesting. My thoughts are that it may have just "showed up" because the light from it barely reached Earth. It may very well be much farther away than they hypothesize. If I hear anyone saying OMG!!! This is Nibiru. I think I might hurl.

Is'nt that a bit of a big margin? Give or take 10,000,000,870 light years


Bit like saying 'I know I left the remote control by the TV, or it could be in south America, or Mars... Don't just sit there, help me look for it!!'

Depends on how fast it would be traveling. It appears suddenly, out of nowhere.

Who is to say what it is..highly doubt any planet-x. More likely however some sun went nova a very long time ago and the light is just now reaching us.

Huge space ball lighting up just in time for Christmas maybe?



Cheers!!!!

Using a wide margin like that leaves it open for interpretation..since they have no idea what it is.....or do they.


However the large margin gives them plenty of padding to speculate and throw out all kinds of theories and conclusions.


Cheers!!!!
