One he caught up with one of the best look at a comet from outside our solar system.

David Jewitt, a UCLA professor of planetary science and astronomy and studied the Comet 2I/Borisov (the “I” stands for “interstellar”), with the help of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, which captured images of the object, and when it was about 260 million kilometers.

The comet is traveling at about 110,000 kilometers per hour.

Another inter-stellar object, which is called ‘Oumuanua, was spotted by a University of Hawaii astronomer in 2017, for use in the solar system.

“‘Oumuamua appeared to be a barren rock, but Borisov is a real asset and more like a regular comet,” said Jewitt, who is leading the Hubble team, in a statement. “It’s a mystery as to why the two are so different. There is so much dust on this thing, we’ll have to work hard in order to dig out the core.”

Of the two, comets, 2I/Borisov and Oumuamua, are said to be the first of the two objects that have traveled through the outer edge of our solar system, in the us, can be observed.

This is possible because scientists have the knowledge and the equipment to be much, much better than they have ever been to.

In a study apparently claims that there are thousands and thousands of such comets in our own solar system, at a given point in time, but most of them are too faint to be detected with current telescopes.

Comets are icy bodies, believed to be the fragments that are left over when the planets form in the outer regions of planetary systems.
