The mysterious "empty trash bag" that orbits the Earth leaves the expert puzzled



Astronomers have left an incomprehensible mysterious object intersecting just 372 miles (600 km) above our planet.

The object, called A10bMLz, was first unveiled last week at the ATLAS-HKO Observatory.

Strangely enough, the object is in orbit in an unusual way. They are very elliptical in orbit, and it is alarmingly close to our planet.

According to the Northolt Branch Observation Centers, the site has a very high area-to-mass ratio, which indicates that it is very light but several meters long.

They explained: "This suggests that this is what is known as the" empty waste bag object ": a piece of light material (possibly metal foil) left behind by rocket launching.”

However, experts remain uncertain about which rocket launcher might come.

The mysterious object is considered a piece of space junk

Because of its low mass, A10bMLz is sensitive to solar radiation pressure, which can change its orbit within a few days.

Worryingly, this means that it is not possible to predict its future trajectory, and it could enter the Earth's atmosphere "within a few months".
