“Oumuamua” is the first interstellar asteroid sighted in the Solar System.

A new interstellar object has been detected navigating our planetary system.  The first interstellar asteroid sighted in the Solar System was discovered by Rob Weryk. The researcher at the University of Hawaii was the first to identify the object.

“Oumuamua” is described by the journal Nature as: “An extremely long red asteroid. Its length is ten times its width.”


“Oumuamua” was sighted by telescopes all over the world and is about 400 meters long. Scientists now try to gather as much information about the asteroid as possible through observations before it disappears from its reach.

The meaning of the Hawaiian name given to the object is: “Messenger from far away who arrives first.”
