Did aliens from Vega visit earth in 2017? Here's why Harvard prof Avi Loeb claims they did

The Chair of Harvard’s Department of Astronomy, Avi Loeb, said, 'The only way to look for (alien civilizations) is to look for their trash, like investigative journalists who look through celebrities' trash'

People in Hawaii were left stunned recently after an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) was seen falling into the ocean. Many residents saw a large glowing, blue mass flying over the night sky around 8:30 pm on Tuesday, December 29, 2020. One person, identified as Moriah, who witnessed passing the UFO over Princess Kahanu Estates said as reported by Hawaii News Now, “I look up and then I was like oh s***! I started calling my husband and them because they were all in the garage. I was like, "Hey, come look up there. See if you see what I see." They all said yeah.”

Moriah also said that she and her husband were so intrigued by the blue colored object that they followed it in their car for about three miles before stopping on Farrington Highway where the thing fell into the ocean. The pair also witnessed another unidentified white light which seemed to be moving in the same direction where the blue one went. However, it vanished after passing over a mountain. Meanwhile, for police, the strange sighting remains a mystery as they did not receive any information about the phenomenon.

This came as a Harvard professor has claimed that the shiny objects coming towards earth are “space garbage” thrown by aliens in the atmosphere. Avi Loeb, who is the Chair of Harvard’s Department of Astronomy, said in his upcoming book - ‘Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth’ - expected to release on January 26 that the object was thrown by the aliens some years ago, which was recently witnessed. According to him, the shiny thing was dropped into our solar system on September 06, 2017, from the Star Vega — a star located about 25 light-years away - which traveled and shifted closer to the sun on September 09. It then passed over Venus at a speed of 58,900 miles per hour before flying “swiftly toward the constellation Pegasus and the blackness beyond". The object eventually came closer to the Earth on October 07.

The shiny thing was first seen by a telescope in Hawaii millions of miles away in October 2017, which was branded as “Oumuamua”. It has been said that some scientists supported a theory that the sun's gravitational pull has no effect on the asteroid. "What would happen if a caveman saw a cellphone? He's seen rocks all his life, and he would have thought it was just a shiny rock,” Loeb questioned in his book in which he also explained that the object, which is ten times longer than its width, takes eight hours to complete a full rotation. “This would make ‘Oumuamua’s geometry more extreme by at least a few times in aspect ratio - or its width to its height - than the most extreme asteroids or comets that we have ever seen. Oumuamua was unusually bright. It was at least 'ten times more reflective than typical solar system [stony] asteroids or comets," the American-Israeli physicist added.

Standing by his theory after the recent sighting of the object, Loeb told the New York Post, “Some people do not want to discuss the possibility that there are other civilizations out there. They believe we are special and unique. I think it's a prejudice that should be abandoned.” He also added that more findings in this field could redefine our position in the universe. “It would put us in perspective. If we are not alone, are we the smartest kids on the block? If there was a species that eliminated itself through war or changing the climate, we can get our act together and behave better. Instead, we are wasting a lot of resources on Earth fighting each other and other negative things that are a big waste,” Loeb stated.
