Astronomers discover the mysterious object of a long "garbage bag" floating above the Earth



The mysterious object of "empty baskets" was seen floating above the ground.

The satellite is considered a few meters, but it is extremely light, astronomers who have seen it.

The object is probably a piece of lightweight material, such as a metal foil that has been left from the rocket launch. However, it is not clear what a racket could run an object called A10bMLz.

At present, the object is on a special, very elliptical path. Sometimes it approaches about 600 kilometers from Earth – but the swing is 1.4 times away from the Moon.

Due to the small weight A10bMLz is very prone to radiation from the sun. That is, its orbit has changed "chaotically" on a scale of days to weeks, according to analysts from the north-eastern branch of the Northolt Branch Observatories (NBO) in London.

This means that it is not possible to fully predict where it would fly. The space is stuck as if it were a plastic bag in the wind.

The object could re-enter the atmosphere of the Earth within a few motnhas, for example, or could continue to fly on Earth.

Such objects of "empty trash" were recorded earlier. But it is the first thing that has ever been seen to be moving in such a distant orbit.

The object was first seen on the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) in Hawaii. Another NBO analysis confirmed that the object was very light, but relatively broad, as well as its strange orbit.
