Strange cigar-shaped ‘Asteroid’ is first interstellar visitor to our solar system!

Last month, the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawai'i picked up a very strange object moving across the sky. It was originally believed that the object was a comet but astronomers quickly realized it was something entirely different.


Above image shows an impression of cigar-shaped asteroid Oumuamua - European Southern Observatory / M. Kornmesser and a cigar-shaped UFO on the backside of the Moon. 

Observations with ESO's Very Large Telescope and others have shown that the object is a rocky cigar-shaped asteroid and it has been confirmed as the first ever interstellar object to enter our solar system.

The object has been dubbed ‘Oumuamua’ by the International Astronomical Union. The name means “a messenger from a far arriving first” in the language of the Central Pacific Island.

According to a European Southern Observatory (ESO) Oumuamua is like nothing seen before. It is red, made of dense rock or metal, and is shaped roughly like a giant cigar measuring up to 400 meters long and around 40 meters wide.

Oumuamua varies dramatically in brightness by a factor of ten as it spins on its axis every 7.3 hours. This unusually large variation in brightness means that the object with its complex, convolute shape, is highly elongated and may well have been wandering through the Milky Way, unattached to any star system, for hundreds of millions of years before its chance encounter with the Solar System, reports RT.

It seems to come from the direction of the star Vega. However, Vega itself moves and was not in the area when Oumuamua was last there about 300,000 years ago.

As quickly confirmed by the astronomers the object is an asteroid which became the first ever interstellar object to enter our solar system; but given the very strange shape of the object it reminds me another huge cigar-shaped ‘UFO’ object on the backside of the Moon photographed by the crew of Apollo 15 which is very similar to the cigar-shaped ‘Messenger From A Far Arriving First’!

Glowing Sphere appears out of nowhere flying towards huge glowing Sphere over Manitoba, Canada

A huge sphere in the sky accompanied by a second smaller sphere has been captured on video by dwayne hegelheimer over Manitoba, Canada on November 19, 2017.


While filming the two spheres the smaller ball of light suddenly vanishes but after a while it returns again out of nowhere flying towards the bigger ball of light which seems to hang motionless in the sky.

It remains unclear what these spheres may have been.

The moment the smaller sphere appears again flying towards the huge sphere can be seen from the 2.05 mark in the video.

Fast Moving Meteor-Like Object from Space Captured by ISS Astronaut

ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli captured a meteor-like object slam into Earth’s atmosphere and burning up over the Atlantic Ocean on November 5, 2017 from the International Space Station.


The space object, traveling at roughly 24 miles per second (40km/s), was sighted over the Atlantic Ocean, off the west coast of South Africa.

Several lightning flashes were also recorded by Nespoli as the Space Station flew from the southern Atlantic Ocean over to Kazakhstan.

Does Astronaut’s Visor Reflection Shows A Mysterious Figure On The Moon?

Many people believe that the Apollo moon landings were one of the biggest hoaxes in human history. They believe that NASA has created this hoax. They actually never traveled to the moon and that everything was staged and filmed here on earth.


Personally I believe that the moon landings were real but if you look at a particular moon landing image showing one of the astronauts and you look at a close-up view of the astronaut’s helmet then in the visor reflection you see a mysterious figure that doesn’t really look like an astronaut.

Now conspiracy theorists suggest that the mysterious figure could be a member of the film crew who has filmed the so-called moon landing here on earth.

Rather than a member of the film crew maybe the strange figure in the visor reflection is just the second astronaut with his camera strapped to his chest of his astronaut’s space suit aimed towards the first astronaut as seen in the image or the image was taken from a steady, tripod-mounted camera using the camera timer before taking the image?

Maybe but then again, if you compare the astronaut in his astronaut’s space suit with the strange figure as seen in the visor reflection then indeed the figure doesn’t really look like an astronaut but more like a person sitting on a square-like box.


Image above: Left - astronaut in space suit, Middle – figure in visor reflection, Right – same figure “sitting on a square-like box” but in negative image.

Here is the original NASA link and decide for yourself whether the figure in the visor reflection is the second astronaut, a member of the film crew on earth or something else.
