Astronomers have released their first analysis of our second known interstellar visitor, comet 2I/Borisov, and these findings show that despite the comet’s extra-solar origins, the materials that this alien visitor is made of are downright familiar. First spotted on August 30, 2I/Borisov’s orbital path was quickly determined to follow a

Residents of Dalcahue City reported seeing the fireballs tumbling through the sky, before they struck the ground, causing at least seven fires, prompting a response from local firefighters.

Interstellar Interloper ‘Oumuamua may have been an Extraterrestrial Spacecraft, according to Harvard Astronomers
A controversial paper has been published by astronomers at Harvard University that suggests that that the odd behavior being exhibited by the interstellar object known as ‘Oumuamua might actually be an artificial object that was built by an extraterrestrial civilization in the form of a solar-powered "lightsail".
One of the founders of the Breakthrough Listen Project, Yuri Milner, has announced that they will be investigating the Solar System’s first recorded interstellar visitor, the asteroid ‘Oumuamua, for any potential artificial signals originating from the object. Although Milner admits that it’s unlikely that their investigation will find anything, ‘Oumuamua’s characteristics are strange enough to warrant a look.
