Oumuamua or The Stone

Posted by Gregg Cure on 11/24/2017

Talk about life imitating art! "Oumuamua" Read this on CNN: On October 19, the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii spotted something strange zooming through our solar system. It turned out to be a visitor from beyond our solar system, and it's unlike anything astronomers have seen before.... "What we found was a rapidly rotating object, at least the size of a football field, that changed in brightness quite dramatically," said lead study author Karen Meech, of the University of Hawaii's Institute of Astronomy and leader of the research team, in a statement... But the shape, 10 times as long as it is wide, has never been seen before.' Upon reading this, I immediately thought of EON.
