This unusual object is believed to be a pattern of trailing debris following a collision between two asteroids in space.

It looks like something out of Krull and is being hailed as a UFO by the press but in reality this unusual looking debris is thought to be little more than the result of an asteroid collision.

"NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a mysterious X-shaped debris pattern and trailing streamers of dust that suggest a head-on collision between two asteroids."
