Confirmed! A 2014 meteor is Earth’s 1st known interstellar visitor

Astronomers have confirmed that a suspicious space rock that hit Earth in 2014 came from another star system, predating the famous interstellar visitor ‘Oumuamua by three years. 

Researchers found the meteor in the catalog of NASA’s Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) in 2019. At that time, however, some of the data about the rock’s trajectory were kept secret by the U.S. Department of Defence (DoD), whose sensors collected them.
