Astronomers have found that ‘Oumuamua, the first interstellar object discovered in the Solar System, is moving away from the Sun faster than expected. Using data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, in cooperation with ground-based telescopes, a team of researchers concluded that ‘Oumuamua is most likely outgassing — suggesting that this enigmatic interstellar nomad is a peculiar comet rather than an asteroid.

And you really think it's just a rock .. wrong !

The Voyager probes from the seventies have been accelerating too, an outer gravitational force apparently. Mass of the Oort cloud?

hityouwithacoustic says:

Objects gain speed as they approach perihelion..
…could it be ,it is still getting closer to its host star? A star that is not our Sun?
Duhnt dunt dahhhhh !!!!!
