AeroSpaceNews.com : This is truly extraordinary news. If only it could have been better imaged and samples taken! And the color! (Yes, I'm kinda excited.) :)

Commissar Gamza : Tyranids might be hibernating on it. Destroy it ASAP.

Khalil Khalife : Seems like an interesting opening scene for the next alien movie

meteor : Can it be an alien space ship ????????

ImmDayzz : What if we could land a telescope on an interstellar asteroid the telescope wouldn't need fuel to travel

YunRemy : Ever watch the arrival?😂

Rukaiya Shaikh : Where the flat earthers now?? 😂

Pacoaliv : its a planet cracking bullet!!!!!

Erick 'The Experience' Garza : Not an alien spacecraft. It is a resource rod that was a test of our civilization. If we were able to retrieve the rod, we would have been awarded with a bounty of rare metals and probably contact from interested extraterrestrials.

Clint Ofray : Im getting srargate universe vibes from this. Could be a ship refueling at our star. 🤔

Victor K : Looks like this asteroid narrowly escaped suction of a black hole )

dudel39 : 0:53, this might be the only guy with this beardcut since 1945 lol

Amrit Minhas : I like to fish

TheWarMarine : Welcome to our solar system!

CobaltFox Plays... : It's comes to speak to whales

Bigdawg _gun : Is mayonnaise an instrument?

Ralph Walters : 1300 feet long, and just 130 feet wide. Dark reddish color. Complex convoluted shape. Could possibly be metallic. No trace of a coma of dust and/or gas. What just passed through our solar system?

Daniel Gray : One thing missing, it was "singing" to us and it circled the earth twice according to other "scopes" and ham radio operators and it was speeding up and then slowing down. Call it what you will but asteroids dont do this.

Is That A Chicken? : The aliens are sending in their own nukes

Succubi Pie : That is the dankest space rock I've ever seen.

JSL Enterprises : It'll be back and will wait for responses back from Humpback Whales!

Christopher Nickels : No one has said that the picture is an artists rendering.

george hinckle : if it hit the moon, woulda been a home run. for sure.

The Golden Potato : A L I E N S

Vishal Sheth : Imagine the Voyager spacecraft being detected like this after billions of years by some alien species and causing a global sensation on the alien planet. They would look at the sky and wonder with awe, but perhaps we would be long gone....

Kib Gg : oh son this look like big .... ( austin power joke...anyone here)

Albanian Stalker : I'm so happy that it didn't hit us!

VanBo : "It's an unusual astroid and different from all of the others" So, y'all have seen ALL of the other astroids?

Mc Henry Mentor : Krypton just blew up So get ready superman is on is way

Gordon Chin : How is that shape not a spaceship?

splitpitch : I think it is one of God's doobies. Probably rolled off his couch after he rolled it. His giant hand will come our way soon looking for it.

Leftseid 421 : This astroid travels 35km/SECOND.imagine being in a spaceship and this astroid travels towards your ship..

Martin Kronström : When I first heard about this interstellar object I was really excited... then power in place told us a very different narrative which became 'the truth'.

Ace Hole : Rendezvous with Rama

OMG 420 : It's kinda sad, we (the world as a hole) easily could have been prepared to take samples like this that fly bye now but we keep fighting with each other. Wish we could send away all the people that dont want to get along. I wish we could take money out of the equation and everyone find a skill. I guess I can dream and try to raise my kids to be responsible and contributor to society. Hope everyone has a great day 😉

USOP : 472 people are flat earth believers, "there is no such thing as an asteroid like that, all asteroids are flat-disk-shaped"

Raptormon OneThreeTwo : It looks like a Mon Calamari Star Cruiser from Star Wars.

ImmaChiaotzu1 : I don't want to say aliens...... but aliens.

Diogenes : Sun to other Star: Dude, can you please pass on that Cigar, please...

D Thomas Williamson : My IQ is sky high I don't fear you low level ai faggos

Sonne & Mond : perhaps the "crew" is dead and it flies through the universe since millions of years ?

Two words : Some planet took a giant dookie

4ndr3 : the biggest cigarette in the whole universe

TJ Desormeau : Why don't U explain why ur saying now there is NO PLANET X????? Yet u have been saying there is.... It doesn't matter what you call it,jus tell us the TRUTH,Don't B AFFRAID !!!!!

Ahmed Khaled : 2:23 She is so excited

KANE LIVES!!!! : Its coming to f#@! us obviously, I mean look at it...

Liberty and justice for all : It's too bad they couldn't land a probe on it and hitch a ride it would have been fascinating to see what it's made of

Cristian Andronescu : One of NASA's greatest achievements lately: seeing a rock in the sky. can they get lower than this?

L u k e B l u n d e l l : How would they know what interstellar trajectory even looks like if this is the first time it has happened? If this asteroid is from another solar system we should be more concerned with what other debris will enter our solar system.

Malcolm XyZ : Oumuamua or לַעֲנָה wormwood didnt stay because too much negative energy
