For the first time ever, astronomers have observed an object that entered our solar system from the outside and the odd asteroid is quite remarkable.
Spotted by researchers in Hawaii, the weird 'visitor' boasts a strange, elongated shape where the quarter-mile length of the asteroid appears to be around ten times its width.
This is particularly amazing to astronomers who say that the ratio is seven times greater than anything seen in the past.
Although such objects have long been theorized to exist coming into and out of solar system, the newfound asteroid constitutes confirmation of that hypothesis.
