Harvard Astronomers Think They Might Have Spotted an Alien Spacecraft

We know everyone has a lot on their minds already on Election Day but, just so you know, some elite U.S. astronomers believe may have discovered evidence of alien life. Harvard University astronomers say a mysterious cigar-shaped object that was spotted hurtling through our solar system at 196,000 mph last year may have been an alien spacecraft sent to investigate Earth. Scientists have argued over the nature of the object since it was first discovered in October 2017. Now a new paper by researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics suggests the dark-red object, which was named “Oumuamua,” meaning “a messenger that reaches out from the distant past” in Hawaiian, might have an “artificial origin.” The paper explains: “‘Oumuamua’ may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization.” However, the astronomers admit this is an “exotic scenario” and also suggest it could be a form of advanced technology produced by humans.
