Yesterday, news broke that an asteroid from another star system was orbiting the Sun backwards.
The space rock, dubbed 2015 BZ509, or BZ for short, is now thought to be the first interstellar object in our solar systems.
Scientists believe it arrived while our planets were still forming and was caught in the gravitational pull of our Sun.
All eight planets and most of the objects in our solar system follow the direction of the Sun’s rotation.
“It is an alien visitor”
The fact that BZ travelled in the opposite way is what made it such a curious object to researchers, and now conspiracists too.
One, Tyler Glockner, who runs YouTube channel secureteam10, dubbed it an “alien visitor”.
He said: “It shouldn’t be there, but it is.
“Be very wary when you hear these outlets refer to something as an asteroid.
“The term is used very loosely by the powers that be, it is the same way they refer to UFOs as swamp gas or balloons.”
There are Millions of Asteroids in the solar system, usually found in the Asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, however those in that pass the Earth are called Near-Earth objects
The video has already racked up more than 100,000 hits in a number of hours.
And viewers were quick to add their own opinions.
One comment read: “How the hell could they tell that is only ab asteroid from that?”
And another added: “NASA will always cover it up by calling it an asteroid.”
