2I/Borisov - The Second Interstellar Visitor Of The Solar System

It is now confirmed that the comet spotted a few weeks ago by amateur astronomer Gennady Borisov from MARGO Observatory, Crimea, is indeed coming from interstellar space. This is only the second known interstellar object to pass through our Solar System.

Interstellar object ‘Oumuamua is a comet

Last October, researchers spotted a long, skinny object speeding through our solar system. Additional observations have now earned the object a comet label.

New Study Shows What Interstellar Visitor ‘Oumuamua Can Teach Us

The first interstellar object ever seen in our solar system, named ‘Oumuamua, is giving scientists a fresh perspective on how planets, asteroids and comets form.

The First Interstellar Object May Have Just Visited Our Solar System

The object zoomed into our solar system from an extreme angle above the path in which most planets and asteroids orbit the sun.
