This freaked me out a bit

So basically it swooped in to our solar system, looped round the back of the sun and dr*ted off again.

Harmless space rock or alien probe - you decide...

It’s a shame we did’t have advanced warning as it would have been cool to send a probe or study it.

The trajectory is really strange. It passes the sun and then makes a huge right turn as if it's in the grip of a much greater gravity pull. It would seem to make more sense if it was travelling in the oposite direction, passing earth and being pulled in the direction of the sun before passing it by.

It doesn't pass by the sun and then turn... it is pulled towards the sun, accelerates, and then slingshots out of orbital velocity.

My astronomy knowledge is sooo outdated.

Did you see the diagram of its trajectory? It did "pass by the sun" If it didn't pass by the sun, it would still be by the sun.

So don't tell me what didn't happen.

I love it when rocket scientists argue physics.

Is this the dawning of the age of Aquarius?
