From a moon with a smooth surface to a Galaxy Extremely far away. we count down our Top 10 Mysterious objects in deep space
This list is a non-votable list and the content of the list reflects the opinion of its author.

The Top Ten

1 A smooth moon

You may have thought tiny moons like Phobos are full of craters and a bumpy right? well Saturn's moon Methone is egg-shaped and has no craters unlike saturns other bumpy moons such as Hyperion or Pandora.

2 A comet with a noise

When rosetta started to orbit comet 67P/Churyomov in 2014, it found a odd noise emitting from its surface. It sounded like clicking. we don't know what it is yet

3 The asteroid with tiny craters

When the Hayabusa spacecraft visited asteroid 25431 Itokawa, it found that Itokawa had no Huge craters! this is because it is a rubble pile. meaning its covered in other stones, but it does smaller craters.

4 The largest galaxy ever discovered

Located in the center of the shapley supercluster, Is IC 1101. it holds record for being the hugest galaxy ever!

5 Kepler-70 b and c the hottest exoplanets ever

Kepler-70 b and c are 2 planets that circle extremly close to Kepler-70. its tempratures are over 5000+ degrees celsius. that's extremely hot.

6 An asteroid

In 1991, a object known as 1991 VG was discovered. but it appears it could be a spacecraft. very little is known but probably NEOWISE (Near Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Sky Explorer) May help us.

7 The galaxy that's far away

In 2016, The hubble space telescope took a image and in one area. a galaxy now dubbed "GN-z11" was discovered. its around 32 Billion light years away

8 The coldest exoplanet

In 2005, a exoplanet called OGLE-2005-BLG-L90 b was discovered. it was found to be really cold. it took 10 years for it to orbit it stars. nearly at the distance of Jupiter.

9 The diamond planet

Like Diamonds? well there's 2 exoplanets made of Diamond, one is 55 Cancri e. it has tons of Diamonds but I wont advise going there, its also pretty hot there and there's no atmosphere to protect you. another is (possibly) PSR J1749-1438 b. it orbits a pulsar and takes 2 hours to complete a orbit even though pulsars and their main types of stars (neutron stars) and white dwarfs there apart stuff. so PSR J1749-1438 b may be evaporating.

10 The darkest planet

You though planets half a day side that spreads halway right? well the exoplanet TrES-2b (Or kepler-1b) Appears to be super dark. only getting 1% of light despite it near its star. it could be its super-heated atmosphere since super-heated atmospheres make things darker.
