What is the mysterious object that flies around the Earth?

Astronomers have discovered a mysterious “object” floating around the Earth and occasionally around the moon. Scientists assume that it is a “lightweight material”, a metal foil that remains behind the rockets after the launch.

They called this object A10bMLz, and they say that it is not clear from which rocket the material is.

As the Independent reports, the object is sometimes approaching about 600 kilometers from the Earth, but scientists have noticed that it is moving around the moon.

They state that because of its low mass, the A10bMLz is very sensitive to the pressure from the radiation of the Sun. This means that its orbit changes “chaotic” from day to day and week by week, according to researchers from the Observatory in London (NBO), which analyzed it.
