“The more I study this object, the more unusual it appears, making me wonder
whether it might be an artificially made probe which was sent by an alien civilization.”
- Avi Loeb, Chair, Harvard's Astronomy Dept., Cambridge, Mass.

"Oumuamua" is a Hawaiian word that means "scout or leader in a battle," according
to the Hawaiian School of Knowledge. The word is pronounced OH-moo-uh-moo-uh.
This is an illustration of the highly strange elongated object that was first noticed near
our Sun in September 2017. Astronomers think it's the first publicly known object
from possibly another distant star system to fly through our solar system.

Oumuamua is about a half mile long (800 m) and 262 feet wide (80 m.) It has no icy tail like comets and spins about three times each Earth day suggesting it's a solid object and not a jumble of asteroid rocks. Currently the mystery object is about 180 million miles from Earth traveling at 38.3 kilometers per second.
