Alien Satellite, Astroid, or Simply Space Junk?

There is a unusual object hurling through space that has a heliocentric orbit very similar to Earth’s orbit. This realativly small object, which is approxmiately 10 meters wide is called 1991 VG and was first discoved by James Scotti on November 6th, 1991.

What makes this space object so unusal is that it has a irregular rate of rotation, speed, and when viewed has strange flunctuations in brightness. Due to 1991 VG orbit and close proximately to Earth when it passes by, the trajatectory of the object should have been altered by now.

Which has led some to believe that is may be artifical or alien in orgins. However some believe it may be a piece of rocketry space junk from the 1970’s Apollo 12 space era.

What do you think the 1991 VG space object could be?

We’re going to find out soon, as the unusal 1991 VG will make another close pass to Earth in the summer of 2017 and be viewable from the Southern Hemisphere.

So mark your calendars for the alien invasion in the summer of 2017… or wave to the “Hi” to historic Apollo 12 space trash.
