Experts have confirmed that the planet that hit Earth in January 2014 came from another solar system. This is the first known object of another system.
In a new memo, US space command officials said the piece of rock was 1.5 feet wide.
Command confirmation means that this popular space object, named Omomuwa, which was discovered in 2017, is actually the second space object to enter our solar system.
According to NASA, this asteroid lit up the skies of Mans Island, Papua New Guinea on January 8, 2014. At that time, this piece of rock was traveling at a speed of 100,000 miles per hour.
Scientists believe the rock may have left debris in the southern Pacific Ocean, which, if discovered, could provide more information about the rock.
Much of the information about this item has been kept secret by the US government.
In the March 1 memo, which was shared on Twitter this month, Dr. Joel Moser, chief scientist at US Space Command, confirmed the information.
