I guess they're saving the name 'Rama' for the first one we rendezvous with?

Soooooooo how's its light curve?
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Nice.  Can't help but speculate that it's perhaps an irregular-shaped chunk of ejecta from some collision in its parent solar system which punted it free of the local gravitational well. Must be a large number of such wanderers out there.

they should shoot something at it to see if it's made of antimatter.

Normally I'd find that speculation agreeable but just recently I learned that all of that material hanging around out there is actually pieces of the Earth. These pieces were ejected after the tides pumped up the continents, like overfilling a shitty waterbed, until finally the planet's crustal sphincter blew it's collective pant-load and thrust all sorts of stuff into outer space during the global flood. All that stuff became the comets and asteroids. Turns out the Earth was like some gigantic extra-solar whoopee cushion.

Might even be some flash-frozen dinosaurs and whatever spinning wildly out of control out there, ready to thaw and BBQ. Can you imagine what you could charge for T-Rex T-Bones or some Stegosaurus Sirloins ?  Elon needs to get on this shit stat.

Light curve of interstellar asteroid `Oumuamua




I wonder how many news websites discovered a bug in their publishing systems' handling of the backtick character, thanks to this object's name?

It's all fun and astronomical science....until the missile bays open up and lock on.

Here's the origin of the name.
