IN PHOTO: Combined deep image of 'Oumuamua from the VLT and other telescope For the first time ever astronomers have studied an asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space. Observations from ESO???s Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object was traveling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. It appears to be a dark, reddish, highly-elongated rocky or high-metal-content object. The new results appear in the journal Nature on 20 November 2017. On 19 October 2017, the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawai?i picked up a faint point of light moving across the sky. It initially looked like a typical fast-moving small asteroid, but additional observations over the next couple of days allowed its orbit to be computed??fairly accurately. The orbit calculations revealed beyond any doubt that this body did not originate from inside the Solar System, like all other asteroids or comets ever observed,??but instead had come from interstellar space. Although originally classified as a comet, observations from ESO and elsewhere revealed no signs of cometary activity after it passed closest to the Sun in September 2017. The object was reclassified as an interstellar asteroid and named 1I/2017 U1 (?Oumuamua) [1]. ??sWe had to act quickly,??? explains team member Olivier Hainaut from ESO in Garching, Germany. ??s?Oumuamua had already passed its closest point to the Sun and was heading back into interstellar space.??? ESO???s Very Large Telescope was immediately called into action to measure the object???s orbit, brightness and colour more accurately than smaller telescopes could achieve. Speed was vital as ?Oumuamua was rapidly fading??as it headed away from the Sun and past the Earth???s orbit, on its way out of the Solar System. There were more surprises to come.
