A new study has revealed exciting information about a lost part of the planet, the Moon, orbiting the Earth.

In their new study, the scientists confirmed that the asteroid named “Kamo`oalewa” is part of the moon and separated from it earlier.

According to the new research published in the scientific journal Communications Earth & Environment, a small asteroid orbiting near the Earth may be part of the moon that was separated from it during an ancient collision, to form an independent asteroid orbiting in a specific path around the Earth.

Confirming this would make the asteroid the first near-Earth object of known lunar origin, the researchers said, and the results could help shed light on the chaotic history of our planet and its scarred companion.

According to the scientific “livescience” magazine, the asteroid was discovered in 2016, using the “PanSTARRS” telescope in Hawaii, and scientists named it “Kamo`oalewa”, a Hawaiian word meaning “swinging celestial part”.

Although the object is about 4 million times smaller than what humans can see with the naked eye, with a diameter of no more than 190 feet (58 meters), the orbit of the asteroid approaches Earth in April to a distance that makes it clear enough to see it with a powerful telescope.

The wandering moon approaches about 9 million miles, or 14.4 million kilometers, from Earth, a distance of about 40 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon.
