‘Oumuamua Is Not the Only Object Inexplicably Accelerating
Oumuamua is the name given to an object that passed through our solar system in 2017. It is an interstellar object, meaning it originated from outside of our solar system. Oumuamua was first detected on October 19, 2017, by the Pan-STARRS1 telescope in Hawaii. The name “Oumuamua” is of Hawaiian origin and means “scout” or “messenger” in English.
Oumuamua is an elongated and cigar-shaped object, estimated to be about 800 meters long and 80 meters wide. It was the first confirmed interstellar object to be detected within our solar system. Its unusual shape and trajectory sparked a lot of interest among scientists and the public.
Scientists have been studying Oumuamua to learn more about its origin, composition, and nature. However, due to its brief visit and the limitations of available telescopes, there is still much we don’t know about it. Oumuamua’s unusual characteristics and its trajectory, which suggests it originated from the general direction of the star Vega in the constellation Lyra, have led to speculation about the possibility of it being an alien spacecraft. However, scientists generally consider natural explanations to be more likely, such as it being a comet or an asteroid.
The nature and origin of Oumuamua remain intriguing and continue to be the subject of scientific research and speculation.
More dark comets have been found. Why does ‘Oumuamua accelerate?
