In October 19th, 2017, the first interstellar object ever detected flew past Earth on its way out of the solar system.

Less than two years later, a second object was detected, an easily identified interstellar comet designated as 2I/Borisov.

The appearance of these two objects verified earlier theoretical work that concluded that interstellar objects (ISOs) regularly enter our solar system.

This animation shows the path of the interstellar object `Oumuamua through the Solar System.

Unlike all other asteroids and comets observed before, this body is not bound by gravity to the Sun.

t has come from interstellar space and will return there after its brief encounter with our Solar System.

Its hyperbolic orbit is highly inclined and it does not appear to have come close to any other Solar System body on its way in.

his animation presents the orbit of comet 2I/Borisov.

It is only the second interstellar object known to have passed through our Solar System.
