Interstellar object confirmed to be from another solar system

#1
Astronomers are now certain that the mysterious object detected hurtling past our sun last month is indeed from another solar system. They have named it 1I/2017 U1(’Oumuamua) and believe it could be one of 10,000 others lurking undetected in our cosmic neighbourhood.

Damn you Guardian. I was hoping for a Shivan Juggernaut. But, that artist rendering... That's no asteroid!

I see this is picking up a trend in the news. We've had some wild theories including the possibility of an unmanned probe designed to slingshot around a target as part of a reconnaissance for a a larger craft, or an ancient alien ship that has lost all power drifting through the universe.

But it's probably still a rock. Not a natural shape, mind you...

Edit: Look at the trajectory of this thing:

The odds of a rock having that shape occur naturally, AND for it to make such a close pass to SOL's goldilocks zone and then to slingshot out?
