NASA Ponders UFO Observed By Hubble Space Telescope

Comet Like Asteroid

     NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is the gift that keeps on giving. As we entered the New Year (and decade) on January 6th, the Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) sky survey become aware of what has been labeled a “mysterious X-shaped debris pattern.” Additionally, a "comet-like" tail was observed.

Science@NASA reported the following:
"The object, called P/2010 A2, was discovered by the Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) sky survey on Jan. 6. At first, astronomers thought it might be a so-called "main belt comet"--a rare case of a comet orbiting in the asteroid belt. Follow-up images taken by Hubble on Jan. 25 and 29, however, revealed a complex X-pattern of filamentary structures near the nucleus:

Comet Like Asteroid
'This is quite different from the smooth dust envelopes of normal comets,' says principal investigator David Jewitt of the University of California at Los Angeles. 'The filaments are made of dust and gravel, presumably recently thrown out of the nucleus. Some are swept back by radiation pressure from sunlight to create straight dust streaks. Embedded in the filaments are co-moving blobs of dust that likely originated from tiny unseen parent bodies.'

Hubble shows the main nucleus of P/2010 A2 lies outside its own halo of dust. This has never been seen before in a comet-like object. The nucleus is estimated to be 460 feet in diameter."
NASA’s thinking is that this “complex debris tail” supports the notion that it’s the end result of a collision between two bodies, in contrast to what is common for a comet’s tail. If true, Hubble once again has captured never before seen images; in this instance—the aftermath of a head-on between two asteroids.

  1. I don't have any problem believing these things are out there and on earth as the Nephalim the Bible speaks about more than once in its pages. They are not benevolent no matter what...and I think that the "V" series is a pretty close analogy of the evil intentions of these beings. These being fell from their first estate and that is a mysterious subject but true. Thanks for letting me share my thoughts...
