'Oumuamua Is Not An Alien Spacecraft

On October 19, 2017, astronomers discovered the first known interstellar object to visit our solar system.

The first interstellar object, `Oumuamua, was discovered in the Solar System by Pan-STARRS in 2017, allowing for a calibration of the impact rate of interstellar meteors of its size ∼100m.

In November 2017, scientists pointed NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope toward the object known as 'Oumuamua -- the first known interstellar object to visit our solar system.

This artist's illustration shows the wayward interstellar visitor 'Oumuamua (pronounced oh-MOO-ah-MOO-ah) racing toward the outskirts of our solar system.

Using data from ESA's Gaia stellar surveyor, astronomers have identified four stars that are possible places of origin of 'Oumuamua, an interstellar object spotted during a brief visit to our Solar System in 2017.

'Oumuamua -- the first interstellar object discovered within our solar system -- has been the subject of intense scrutiny since its discovery in October 2017.

An object from another star system that made a brief appearance in our skies guised as an asteroid turns out to be a tiny interstellar comet.

The first interstellar object ever seen in our solar system, named 'Oumuamua, is giving scientists a fresh perspective on the development of planetary systems.

New research finds that 'Oumuamua, the rocky object identified as the first confirmed interstellar asteroid, very likely came from a binary star system.

Scientists from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) joined in the recent international effort to observe -- and create a detailed profile of -- the first known large object from interstellar space to pass through our solar system.

For the first time ever astronomers have studied an asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space.
