New Object Orbiting Earth

This is an interesting development posted at 

Look up the archived page for Oct. 27, 2009.  Archive search is near top right of page.

I’m not sure I agree with the experts referred to in the post, though.  Where are my X-ray glasses?

MYSTERY OBJECT: Yesterday, astronomers in Arizona, New Mexico and Spain, all hunting for near-Earth asteroids, discovered a “mystery object” orbiting Earth. Temporarily named “9UO1FF6,” it is small and in an elongated, 31-day orbit. Experts say it is probably a piece of an Apollo-era Moon mission. We’ll get a closer look on Oct. 29th when it zips past Earth about 82,000 km (0.2 lunar distances) away.

    I rarely, if ever, trust these kinds of videos posted on the Internet.

    I may have missed it but I don’t think Space Weather updated about the mystery object.

    Link to video –

    Happy Frosty moon tonight!

    The video is of pictures taken of either space junk or *possibly* what you refered to 10-27-09. ? The video takes a minute to start. There is some opera like music along with it so be prepared.

    Thanks, Sily! Whatever pictures we are shown will not answer questions, that’s for sure! 🙂

    Interesting. I was reading at alienhub that by the 29th the investigators should have a better look at it because it will be closer to earth. Can’t help but think there is symbology in the name 9UO1FF6

    FF – final fantasy
    UO1 = I owe you
    a 9 and a 6 = a six is a nine upside down
