'Alien' rock could be first confirmed object from outside our solar system

A small asteroid or comet is believed to be the first confirmed "interstellar object" to have entered our solar system from somewhere else in the galaxy. Moving between stars and occasionally passing through other solar systems, it is something scientists have long believed to exist. "This is the first such detection," said Paul Chodas, head of the Centre for Near Earth Object Studies. 28-10-17

If we stood at the edge of our solar system, what would be the closest celestial object not in our solar system?
Is it just coincidence there have been more UFO sightings after the Nuclear Bomb tests in the 40s? The Space Aliens know that the ever growing population of humans will out grow any resources. Then humans will come swarming out of the solar system like a plague on the galaxy. The other Space Alien species must kill us all now and strangle humanity in its solar system cradle before it is too late. God help us all!
Interstellar object, alien communication tool or just some rock?
What is on Jupiter, in space? Jupiter is the largest world in our solar system; it’s a gas giant, consisting mostly of hydrogen and helium. It has more than 60 moons, and is the center of a mini-solar system all by itself. Jupiter’s rotation is the fastest in the solar system, in about 10 hours, and it’s atmsophere has separated into ‘bands’ due to the rotation and high wind velocities of it’s components.
Hi I was wondering do aliens exist? Hello Bmac, Strange you should ask this question today. It has just been announced that a huge object passing Earth COULD be an alien spacecraft because apparently it is not acting in a way a conventional asteroid or comet would. It is is very likely that it is a natural object but it certainly has some scientists thinking. To read the story please visit the link below: There are plenty of reports on the Internet about this possible phenomenon. I have to admit that from the photograph it looks more like a very long thin piece of rock to me. Poseidon
Alien life found only 39 light years away? Possible, yes but I have not heard of such news. Source? The possibility for alien life within our solar system still exists.

The newfound world orbits a star named Kepler 90 which is larger and hotter than the sun and lies 2,500 light years from Earth in the constellation of Draco.
Aliens Didn't Send That Mysterious Object to Our Solar System After All In December, astronomers checked every inch of an interstellar object that had entered our solar system for evidence of artificial technology. They spent weeks pouring over the data, looking for radio signals that would suggest the object, known as ‘Oumuamua, may be something other than a just a strange space rock. They didn’t find anything. The Breakthrough Listen Initiative, a $100 million effort in the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life, did not detect radio emissions from the object, according to a new paper published on arXiv

So far, they have found no evidence of artificial signals coming from the asteroid, they said Thursday—but the search isn’t over yet. “Indeed, nothing has popped up, but we’re busy churning through the data we’ve collected so far,” said Andrew Siemion, the director of the Berkeley SETI Research Center who leads its Breakthrough Liste

Mystery space object may be first confirmed interstellar visitor A small asteroid or comet that has been spotted racing through our solar system may have come from elsewhere in the galaxy, U.S. space scientists say, possibly marking the first such interstellar visitor observed from Earth. The mystery object, so far known only as A/2017 U1, was discovered earlier this month by a researcher using a sophisticated telescope system at the University of Hawaii that continually scans the universe for such phenomenon. "We have been waiting for this day for decades," said Paul Chodas, manager of the Nationa

How many objects have been confirmed to support life in the solar system? One
Which scientists gathered data that confirmed the heliocentric model of the solar system? i think it's Kepler
Which object in the solar system is essentially stationary relative to all the other objects in the solar system? Very interesting question! No object in the solar system is stationary with respect to any other object. We know that you're looking for "the sun" as an answer, but what kind of explanation can take us there ? How can we describe it ? Let's say that if you take the average position of every object in the solar system, over the course of many hundreds of years and with respect to the distant "fixed" stars, those points are all bunched together in the region of space where the sun resides. That's the best I can do, while feeling relatively honest about it.
How many alien worlds do you know exist outside of your solar system? The meaning of the term "alien world" is somewhat ambiguous. No evidence of life on any planet in the solar system except earth, or on any planet around any other star, has yet been found.
What is a natural object that orbits another object in the solar system besides the Sun? The Moon (Earth's moon) orbits Earth. Any moon orbiting a planet is orbiting something other than the Sun.
What does an alien planet with different atmospheric and solar system compositions see when light is reflected or refracted through water like a rainbow like ours Or something else? One of the Best questions I have ever seen, you have an awesome imagination. Sadly the answer is rather dull. If the planets composition is different along with the Solar system, the life form that evolves, could be very different to us. If that is the case, they may not even view the same spectrum of light that we do. If you have seen the film Predator, the Alien does not see visual light but looks through UV and IF. In which case we would have no idea what light looks like to them. However, the basic physics of electromagnetic radiation is the same everywhere. If there are aliens that see in
Why is the sun the central object in the solar system? Because it has almost all of the mass in the solar system, and that's how gravity works in such a situation.
What was the very first object made in our solar system?
What solar-system object comes very close to sun at one end and goes far away from the sun at the other end? I'm not very sure, but it's either a comet or an asteroid. Hopes this helps a little.
What holds the object in the solar system? GRAVITY
What is the name of an object which enters the inner solar system? Comet
What is an object that different on other planets in the solar system? Weight & gravitational force
Is the Sun the object that holds our solar system together? Yes, the Sun contains more than 99.8% of the mass of the solar system, and its gravitic influence extends as more than a trillion (10^12) miles into space, as far as the Oort Comet Cloud (between 50,000 and 200,00 AU).
What object in your solar system causes the tides of the sea?
What object in the solar system is made of mostly ice? Many comets are believed to be largely composed of water ice, with some other amounts of silicate (rocky) components, fragments or dust - such that they earned the nickname "dirty snowballs."
Name the largest object in your solar system? The largest single celestial object in the solar system would be the Sun (or Sol), inside which over a million Earths could comfortably fit.
What is the second most massive object in the solar system? Jupiter. The Sun takes up 99.5% of all the mass in the solar system; Jupiter accounts for half of the rest.
What is the most distance object in the solar system are? The most distant objects that are actually part of our solar system are probably long-period comets that move between the inner solar system and the proposed "Oort Cloud". If we accept the theory of the Oort Cloud - that there must be a vast reservoir of comet-like material far away from the Sun, because we know that we're still seeing comets and they cannot last forever - then some bodies in the Oort Cloud would be "most distant". However, Oort Cloud objects are generally too small and too dark and too distant to be seen even in our largest telescopes; we have never detected anything out the
