In the first case, yes. They are extraterrestrial.

In the second case, yes. The soup is extraterrestrial. In the third case, yes. The combo would be extraterrestrial.

I suppose the argument could be made that we are in fact the extraterrestrials. However, the original question asked about 'visiting', which to me implies a decision. Rightly or wrongly, my answer regards something making a conscious decision to visit Terra, meaning it came from someplace at least as far away as outside the breathable atmosphere..

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...
