Weird Comet Or Asteroid?

The mystery object, located 100 million miles from Earth, may really be the aftermath of a hypervelocity collision between two asteroids — like a bullet hitting another bullet. Whatever it is, nothing quite like it has ever before been seen in the heavens. The comet-like object, called P/2010 A2, was first discovered by the LINEAR (Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research program) sky survey on January 6. Telescopes around the world turned their attention to it. Comet expert David Jewitt of UCLA quickly applied for special discretionary time on the Hubble Space Telescope to get a close-up look at the object. Hubble pictures taken on January 25 and 29 left everyone speechless. It’s fun watching the expression on the faces of astronomers when they first see it, like “WTF!?”

It’s so weird-looking that you want to call the UFO hotline. Maybe it’s a Romulan “Bird of Prey” starship decloaking as it enters our solar system.
