from your linked article:
"This is the most extreme orbit I have ever seen," said Davide Farnocchia, a scientist at the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies. "It is going extremely fast and on such a trajectory that we can say with confidence that this object is on its way out of the solar system and not coming back."
'It' may eventually get a better name than A/2017 U1, but since the object is the first of its kind, the International Astronomical Union will have to come up with new rules for naming the object."
I vote we name it Gina.

Well isn't there an asteroid passing by in November? There is a lot going on up there, even I can't watch a lot of those videos because they are scary.
