• A minimoon orbiting Earth was discovered in February
  • A UFO expert believes the minimoon is an alien probe
  • Aliens might be studying how Earth is dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak

A UFO expert claimed that the newly discovered minimoon currently orbiting Earth could be an alien probe observing the planet. The expert said the alleged probe might be analyzing how humans are dealing with current crises such as the coronavirus outbreak.

The minimoon was first discovered by scientists on Feb. 15. The exact nature of the object remains unknown. Although many scientists believe that it is most likely an asteroid, others think that it could be an artificial object, such as a dead satellite that got caught in Earth’s gravitational pull.

After analyzing the object, scientists were able to map out its trajectory. According to their findings, the object originally orbited the Sun before getting caught in Earth’s gravity. Although the object was discovered recently, scientists believe it has been orbiting Earth since 2017, reported.

Since the object seems to be following an unstable orbit around Earth, scientists predict it will most likely get kicked out into deep space sometime in April. Another factor that could pull the object away from Earth is the gravity of the Moon.

For Scott Waring of ET Data Base, the arrival of the object could mean that aliens are watching Earth. In a recent blog post, Waring claimed that the minimoon circling Earth is an alien vessel that’s observing the planet.

According to Waring, the alien probe arrive to study how humans are coping with current global issues. At the moment, the most prominent international issue is the COVID-19 outbreak, which has already reached over 87,000 confirmed cases worldwide.

Aside from observing humans’ reactions to the outbreak, Waring noted that the alleged aliens might be trying to determine if the inhabitants of Earth are capable of avoiding another mass-extinction event.

“Why did a UFO go into orbit around earth now?” Waring wrote in a blog post. “To record, watch and research how humanity copes and tries to deal with Coronavirus. Aliens may know than we do about its capabilities. They may be here not just to witness humanity fight the virus, but to see if we can avoid a possible ELE (extinction-level event).”
