Earth has a new 'traveling buddy' as researchers confirm mystery object circling the planet is an asteroid and not space junk

Scientists have confirmed the true identity of a mysterious object said to be Earth’s traveling buddy.

The object, called 2016 HO3, was first spotted last year appearing to circle Earth like a ‘quasi-satellite.’

While many suspected it to be an asteroid, some have suggested that it could instead be space junk tumbling around the sun – but now, new observations with one of the world’s largest telescopes reveal it truly is an asteroid.
