CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA- Scientists say they've never seen anything like it, a six-tailed asteroid in the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
The Hubble Space telescope spotted it.
The comet-like tails change shape as the asteroid sheds dust.
The asteroid is designated P/2013 P5 and is rotating so much that its surface is flying apart.
Scientists believe its the fragment of a larger asteroid damaged in a collision some 200-million years ago.
The Pan-STARRS telescope in Hawaii spotted the asteroid first in August but the Hubble found all the tails in September.
