Harvard University chief of astronomy Avi Loeb said he detected traces of aliens that entered the solar system in 2017, and that they were likely some sort of garbage from those objects.
Loeb noted in his book “From Extraterrestrials: The First Signal of Intelligent Life Extraterrestrial,” which is expected to be published before the end of January. An object that was observed roaming the solar system in 2017, but it was not just a rock, but a piece of technology belonging to extraterrestrials, according to the “New York Post” newspaper.
According to the scientist, the body’s journey, coming from outside the solar system from the side of the star “Vega”, was observed during its penetration into the solar system on September 6, 2017.
The space object continued to advance in its journey, until it reached Earth on October 7 of the same year.
The object was first observed through a monitoring center in Hawaii, using a panoramic scanning telescope and a rapid response system, “Pan-Stars”, which together make up the most accurate telescopes in the world.
Scientists believe that the length of the object exceeds 90 meters and, despite its smallness relative to space, its discovery is a great thing for astronomers.
While the scientists were unable to take clear photos of the body, they tracked it with their advanced devices for 11 days. Collect as much data as possible about it.
At first, scientists believed that what they observed was nothing more than an ordinary comet, but the lack of many properties of comets raised doubts, leading Loeb to believe that what he saw was a type of technology neglected by a strange civilization.
The observed data reveals that the body measures between five and ten times its width, approximately the same as a cigarette. According to the observed figures, it was probably a small body with dimensions similar to a candle.
According to the newspaper, no object of this or similar shape has been seen in space in recent years.
When it approached the sun, and began to pass it, the scientists expected to observe a slowdown in the movement of the space object when trying to move away from the sun, due to its tremendous gravity, but it amazed them when it accelerated during its sunrise, as if it were equipped with an engine that helps you move forward.
Loeb does not rule out that the object is “space junk” that was part of a spaceship used by an ancient civilization.
