While we celebrated the New Year in the Solar system broke new comet

Comet C/2019 Q4

When August 30, 2019 the astronomer of the Crimean astrophysical Observatory Gennady Borisov noticed an unusual interstellar object in our Solar system, the scientific world got the opportunity to expand their knowledge in the study of comets — are extremely useful objects for mining future. According to an article published on the portal , almost immediately after the discovery of the comet, intelligence system, NASA noted that the orbit of the object was very unusual compared to its predecessor — an asteroid Omwamwi. What's is the uniqueness of comet C/2019 Q4 and does it dangerous for the humans?

In the Solar system rushed the comet from another star system

that about 3 years ago in the Solar system flew a mysterious asteroid Omwamwi, which helped scientists from around the world to understand the movement of interstellar objects. However, in contrast , discovered the comet C/2019 Q4 will be much more monitored object over a long period of time, which can bring more useful data about the structure of the universe in modern science.

As is known, all objects in our Solar system orbit bound to the Sun — heavy center, not allowing their planets, including our Earth, to fly away into outer space. And Omoloi, and the second interstellar object named in honour of the first astronomer who discovered its presence in immediate proximity from us, were not on the standard orbits, which led scientists to believe that the only place which could explain the origin of both objects must be of deep space.

Since the discovery of comet C/Q4 2019 summer 2019, the facility was studied in three different groups of astronomers, who confirmed that the comet came from another galaxy. According to their calculations, an interstellar wanderer flew closest to Earth on December 29, when he was between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars. It is also known that the comet is several kilometers in diameter, ejects dust and gas surrounding bright halo.

Comet Borisov or C/2019 Q4 — the first interstellar comet, officially recorded by scientists.

Astronomers believe that a unique comet will be visible from Earth throughout the year, about 8 months longer than that will give staff more opportunities to work. Because Omwamwi was rather unusual in its composition and was extremely difficult object for observation, it was difficult to decipher the exact size and origin of the object without any shadow of a doubt. Comet C/2019 Q4, however, shows all the signs planetesimals last, being by nature the remaining planetary building block far beyond our Solar system. In order to prove this intriguing hypothesis, astronomers have plenty of time to study the comet Borisov, which is how often it happens, you may provide us with even more puzzles in the near future. In any case, the discovery of the comet means that in 2020 we will be able to take a new look at interstellar objects and how they move in space.
