First-Ever Interstellar Comet Successfully Imaged By Gemini

3

On August 30, amateur astronomer Gennady Borisov spotted a comet of extrasolar origin passing through our Solar System.

This is the second time in as many years that an interstellar object has been observed (the last being ‘Oumuamua 2.0 in 2017).

Thanks to the Gemini Observatory, we now have pictures of this comet, making it the first object of its kind to be successfully imaged in multiple colors!

The first-ever comet from beyond our Solar System has been successfully imaged by the Gemini Observatory in multiple colors.

The image of the newly discovered object, denoted C/2019 Q4 (Borisov), was obtained on the night of 9-10 September using the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph on the Gemini North Telescope on Hawaii’s Maunakea.

Yes, the first images have started coming in of that new interstellar comet… And they are out-of-this-world.

  1. This plays into the panspermia theory. Our solar system is fairly isolated so these things seem to be fairly common.

    Maybe we can place a solar powered radio transmitter on one. Next time it comes close to sun it might attract some attention. Message in a bottle type of thing.

  2. Funny, if revelations 12 started on Sept 23, 2017, then this comet is arriving around the time some predict the rapture is arriving…curious…
