    Following found on the spaceweather.com site:
    
      On February 22nd, a small asteroid named 2006 DQ14 flew past Earth
    at a distance of 1.2 million miles. But was it really an asteroid?
    2006 DQ14 follows an orbit around the sun strikingly similar to
    Earth's. This raises the possibility that the "asteroid" is
    actually space junk originally from our own planet. 2006 DQ14
    was last near Earth in Sept. 1977, about the same time that
    NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft was launched atop a Titan III Centaur.
    
    best wishes
