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’!

Live Webcam captures Two UFOs entering Popocatépetl Volcano, Mexico

On December 6, 2020 the live webcamdemexico monitoring the Popocatépetl volcano in Mexico captured in a short time two cigar-shaped UFOs entering the crater of the volcano.  A UFO apparently descends into the crater, four minutes later, a second UFO follows the first one disappearing into the crater of the volcano too.  This volcano has been a UFO hotspot for years with hundreds of reports of UFOs flying over as well as entering and exiting the crater and so far, there is no explanation for all these strange activities around the Popocatépetl Volcano.  

Shapeshifting Humanoid Flying Over Ohio?

A strange black humanoid-like object hovering in the sky over Chillicothe, Ohio. The figure changing directions and changes shapes.  Back in 2019 (2019-05-17) the witness noticed something in the sky hovering around on which he pulled out his camera and recorded what he saw.  To see the strange object better, he zoomed in, watched it, zoomed out and zoomed in again. It was that moment the black figure started changing shapes.  Since the figure was far away in the sky he didn't get a good look at it until he went inside his house to get a better look out of the light and what he saw was something unexplainable.

TV News channel captures UFO flying over Hogback Mountain

Witness was watching the local (Greenville/Spartenburg South Carolina) 7 news around 12:10pm on 5/16/2020, the shot changed to the camera setup to lookout over Hogback Mountain in Spartanburg county.  It was during the live shot, when a red, glowing, disc shot across the screen.  He immediately sent a copy of the footage to the news channel and they got back to him saying they hadn't noticed it, but thought it was exciting.

Three huge UFOs recorded while crossing the Orion Nebula

There seems to be a lot of UFO activity in deep space. Last week a sky-watcher captured a huge cigar-shaped craft passing the Orion Nebula and now another sky-watcher, Peter Tiagunov recorded three interstellar craft crossing the Orion Nebula.  The images shows the three UFOs emerging from the center of the Nebula flying further through space in a triangular formation.  The question is whether these UFOs are of alien origin or whether they belong to the secret space program, that includes a fleet of spaceships equipped with a technology far beyond what current aerospace technology is capable of.  Peter captured the UFOs with a Telescope: RC 10" (x.75 reducer) - Mount: EQ6R-Pro - Camera: QHY 163M Cooled (no filters).
