In the past few years, scientists have been exploring a question: where did the asteroid oscillating star (Kamo’oalewa) come from.

This asteroid was discovered in 2016, and so far astronomers only know that it is an asteroid that is in common orbit with the Earth, but nothing else.

However, new research seems to have found more clues to explore its mysterious origin: the asteroid is likely to be a fragment of the moon.

Benjamin Sharkey is an astronomer at the University of Arizona and one of the main authors of a new research report recently published in the journal Nature. He said: “If it is really a normal asteroid, then it looks very different from the normal asteroid we expected.”
