'Dumbfounded' - Excuse me but we don't use that word anymore. "Bidened" is the new term. Examples:

"Astronomers Bidened by Six-Tailed Asteroid"

"When Joey had his brain removed he was completely bidened"

Why would an archangel hang out in an asteroid field?

What does an archangel look like? If you say, “like a six pointed asteroid,” then you have to go to the end of the line again.

Maybe he needed some 'alone' time.

I would surmise it could be a highly irregularly shaped asteroid, with tails coming off different angular surfaces.

How large is the comet? What trajectory is it on? ... Could be coming apart and making several ‘objects’ to track.

Astronomers viewing our solar system’s asteroid belt with NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have seen for the first time an asteroid with six comet-like tails of dust radiating from it like spokes on a wheel.

Unlike all other known asteroids, which appear simply as tiny points of light, this asteroid, designated P/2013 P5, resembles a rotating lawn sprinkler. Astronomers are puzzled over the asteroid’s unusual appearance.

If that piece of rock and ice “dumfounds” them, how can they even consider they will ever grasp all of Creation?
