It's an interesting subject for sure.

The odds of an interstellar object travelling too fast (~59,000 mph) to be gravitationally captured by the solar system (which itself is moving around the galaxy at 486,000 mph) and passing within the orbit of the innermost planet and then close by Earth are what precisely?

As to the change maybe the Sun folded and spun a magnetic field round it to speed it up. If that's the case She might think about making a guass rifle about 300,000 miles long before you know it.
