Hubble's New Image Of Interstellar Object

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has given astronomers their best look yet at an interstellar visitor – Comet 2I/Borisov – whose speed and trajectory indicates it is from outside of our Solar System.

This Hubble image, taken on October 12, is the sharpest ever view of the comet. Hubble reveals a central concentration of dust around the solid icy nucleus.
