P/2010 A2 – Mystery in Space.

Scientists cannot identify mystery object in space. LINEAR's discovery might prove to be more than just another space object. Astronomers are baffled and are not able to explain what the object is and theorize it might be two asteroids after collision.

P/2010 A2. Mystery object in space.

P/2010 A2 was discovered on January 6, 2010 by Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) using a 1 meter (36″) reflecting telescope with a CCD camera. It was LINEAR’s 193rd comet discovery. It has been observed over a 112 day arc of the 3.5 year orbit. It appears to have come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) around the start of December 2009, about a month before it was discovered. The object is about 150 meters (430 feet) in diameter.

Science says P/2010 A2 is likely the debris left over from a recent collision between two very small asteroids. However, this has not been proven as a fact, it is only a theory.

Does this look like two asteroids after a collision?
