’Asteroid’ set to become ’minimoon’ could be space junk, researchers say

Astronomers tracking an object, which looks set to be captured by Earth’s gravity and will temporarily turn into a minimoon, said it could actually be a space junk from an old rocket launched in the 1960s and not an asteroid as previously thought. Earlier, researchers in Hawaii identified the object in September and named it 2020 SO after designating it as a near-Earth object.
