From Fox News:
A mysterious “continuously active” object known as a “Trojan asteroid” has been discovered in Jupiter’s orbit, making it the first known object like it.
The object, known as 2019 LD2, has a “comet-like tail” made up of gas and dust. It was first observed by the University of Hawaiʻi’s Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) telescope system in June 2019. One month later, an additional set of observations by ATLAS strengthened the case it could be a Trojan asteroid. In April 2020, when it reappeared, additional routine ATLAS observations “confirmed it still looks like a comet,” which indicated to researchers it’s likely been “continuously active for almost a year,” researchers noted in a statement.
