New Details about Interstellar Visitor on This Week @NASA – November 24, 2017
New data reveal that the interstellar asteroid that recently zipped through our solar system is rocky, cigar-shaped, and has a somewhat reddish hue. It’s the first confirmed object from another star observed in our solar system, and was discovered Oct. 19 by the University of Hawaii’s Pan-STARRS1 telescope team, funded by NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations Program. The telescope team named it ‘Oumuamua (oh MOO-uh MOO-uh) – Hawaiian for “a messenger from afar arriving first.” The unusually-shaped asteroid, which is up to a quarter mile long and perhaps 10 times as long as it is wide, may provide new clues into how other solar systems formed.

Oumuamua asteroid unlike any object ever seen before
On October 19, the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii spotted something strange zooming through our solar system. It turned out to be a visitor from beyond our solar system, and it's unlike anything astronomers have seen before.It is the first observed object from outside our solar system, according to a study published Monday in the journal Nature -- and, as the researchers call it, an "oddball."
New asteroid 2017: Missile-like asteroid first interstellar visitor solar system - TomoNews
THE SPACE BETWEEN MARS AND JUPITER — NASA says a recently discovered asteroid is our solar system's first interstellar visitor.The asteroid was discovered by the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System in Hawaii on October 19, 2017.NASA-funded research published in the journal Nature says it is the first interstellar object to enter our solar system and will travel inside it for over a year.Scientists speculate the asteroid is 400 meters long, and around 40 m wide. A lot about it is unknown, but the asteroid could be made up materials like metals or rocks, and is likely to be billions of years old.NASA says the asteroid will exit the solar system in January 2019 after passing through Saturn's orbit. It will next head for the Pegasus constellation.

Astronomers Discover First Interstellar Object
Astronomers recently discovered a bizarre-looking object in our solar system that's unlike anything they've ever seen before. It's so peculiar that astronomers think it's not even from our solar system. They've dubbed this mysterious interstellar asteroid "Oumuamua." Following is a transcript of the video.This asteroid is not from around here. Turns out, it came from another star system. This is the first time humanity has observed an interstellar object.Astronomers discovered it on Oct. 19. At first, they thought it was a comet. But its orbit was unlike anything ever seen before, and it was traveling at unusually high speeds: 85,700 mph.So, astronomers reclassified the object as an interstellar asteroid. Asteroids in our solar system are usually round and lumpy. But this object probably looks more like a giant cigar. Observations suggest it's about a quarter mile long. Right now, it's about 124 million miles from Earth.Over the next 2 years, it will pass by Jupiter and Saturn's orbits. Astronomers predict it will leave our solar system in Jan. 2019. Making its way into deep space toward the constellation Pegasus.It may be the first interstellar visitor, but the bigger question is: Will it be the last?Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/saiFACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/techinsider

Astronomers Say Reddish, Cigar-Shaped Interstellar Asteroid Is 'Like Nothing Seen Before'
Astronomers are shedding more light on a recent interstellar visitor.
First Interstellar Asteroid Wows Scientists
Scientists were surprised and delighted to detect --for the first time-- an interstellar asteroid passing through our solar system. Additional observations brought more surprises: the object is cigar-shaped 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 is unlike any asteroid or comet observed in our solar system to date, and may provide new clues into how other solar systems formed.

*First confirmed interstellar visitor to our solar system
Astronomers have confirmed their first interstellar visitor to the solar system. The 400 metre wide newly discovered asteroid or comet has been designated A/2017 U1.
*Asteroid Itokawa’s violent past
Samples of the Asteroid Itokawa indicate the 500 metre wide space rock has had a violent history. The samples were collected by Japan’s Hayabusa spacecraft in 2005.
*Rosetta’s comet provides missing link in planet formation
Scientists have confirmed that planets are created by small particles of matter coming together over time to form progressively larger and larger bodies. The findings provide an important missing link in sciences understanding of how planets are formed.
*Galaxies wobble at the centres of galaxy clusters
Existing models on dark matter claim the super dense cores of the largest galaxy clusters contain massive galaxies with so much dark matter that that they never move. However new observations have shown that this density is much smaller than predicted, and that the galaxies at the centres of these clusters do move -- or at least wobble.
*Yellowstone spawned twin super-eruptions that altered global climate
Scientists have discovered that the last eruption of the Yellowstone super volcano was a double header event with two massive explosions spaced just 170 years apart. The findings are based on an analysis of volcanic ash which spewed from Yellowstone during the super eruptions 630 thousand years ago.
*The Science Report
New findings indicate European drought trends are lining up with climate change projections.
Evidence that a huge carnivorous dinosaur roamed southern Africa 200 million year ago.

An Alien Object Was Recently Detected In Our Solar System | Mach | NBC News
A small, recently discovered asteroid or possibly comet, appears to have originated from outside the solar system, coming from somewhere else in our galaxy. Astronomers are still trying to figure out what exactly it might be and where is came from.

'Alien' Rock Spotted in Our Star System for 1st Time
On Oct. 18, astronomers think they spotted a comet or asteroid that originated in a different star system passing through our solar system for the first confirmed time.
Asteroid 2017 U1
If its origins are confirmed, the asteroid or comet, named A/2017 U1, will be the first object known to come from elsewhere in the galaxy. A mysterious object detected hurtling past our sun could be the first space rock traced back to a different solar system, according to astronomers tracking the body. While other objects have previously been mooted as having interstellar origins, experts say the latest find, an object estimated to be less than 400m in diameter, is the best contender yet. While other objects have previously been mooted as having interstellar origins, experts say the latest find, an object estimated to be less than 400m in diameter, is the best contender yet. The observations reveal that the object is in a strong hyperbolic orbit – in other words, it is going fast enough to escape the gravitational pull of the sun. Objects originating from, and on long-period orbits within, our solar system can end up on a hyperbolic trajectory, and be ejected into interstellar space – for example if they swing close by a giant planet, since the planet’s gravity can cause objects to accelerate. According to observations made by astronomers, the object entered our solar system from above, passing just inside Mercury’s orbit and travelling below the sun, before turning and heading back up through the plane of the solar system towards the stars beyond. At its closest, on 9 September, the object was 23.4m miles from the sun. First spotted earlier this month by a telescope at an observatory in Hawaii, astronomers around the world are now following the path of the object.

First Object From Another Star System Found Near Earth
A week ago an object was discovered by the PAN-STARRS project, initially it was thought to be a comet because of its orbit it has since been shown to be the first ever asteroid to have come from interstellar space, travelling with more energy than any object in our own solar system.
Interstellar Asteroid? Looks Like 2017 U1 is Not A Comet
Yesterday (Oct. 25) we reported that a comet had been discovered named C/2017 U1. New observations later in the day have revealed the object to be “completely stellar” and its designation was changed to asteroid A/2017 U1 by the Minor Planet Center. It’s trajectory is currently thought to be hyperbolic but further observations are still needed to predict its origin. -- Full Story: https://www.space.com/38580-interstellar-object-spotted-comet-asteroid-mystery.html-- More about the redesignation at the Minor Planet Center website: http://www.minorplanetcenter.net/mpec/K17/K17UI3.htmlOriginal report: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hK6GYizNVGwCredit: Space.com / orbit animation: NASA/JPL-Caltech / edited by Steve Spaleta http://www.twitter.com/stevespaleta
