And even, it could be said, new moons and planets."

The cited observation is consistent with the asteroid being formed in the early Solar System.
The scientists say they are likely seeing the asteroid's surface dust, turned red over millions of years of exposure to the sun, being ejected into space, revealing a fresh, less irradiated surface beneath, that appears blue at near-infrared wavelengths.
