The Hubble Space Telescope caught an unexpected asteroid streaking across a field of distant galaxies.

In the image, released on Monday (Jan. 16) by the European Space Agency (ESA), the asteroid can be seen as a row of four thin consecutive lines captured in alternating shades of blue and orange spreading from the left upper corner toward the middle section of the image.
