Brief, well written and well sourced article that appeals to non-experts in the astronomy field. The article does a good job of providing a generic context around the happening and links enough direct sources and tweets (containing other relevant sources) that enable interested readers to carry on reading.

This is a great story to follow and I'm glad it's being covered. I appreciate the author's lack of speculation and refusal to turn this story into a clickbait headline. Although there's not much reporting around where these objects came from or what they might teach scientists, it's a fun read and overall well written.

This article provides facts, sources some twitter posts (though they link to more scholarly things), and shows the hypothetical orbit.
