Derchon Anomaly

In early 1102, an unidentified object transited the outer reaches of the Derchon/Lunion (Spinward Marches 2024) system, following a roughly Coreward-Coreward-Trailing vector. It was traveling at such high velocity (estimated 0.12C) that no ship could possibly intercept it.

Sensor data revealed that that:

1) the object had a high albedo
2) it was spinning or tumbling rapidly
3) its mass was in the 1000-2000 ton range
4) it was highly radioactive

Although the object was not under acceleration, these facts argue strongly in favor of some type of artificial construction.
