Default Here comes another one!

A new comet was just identified as coming from outside the solar system.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/12/world...rnd/index.html

It is traveling at 93,000 mph, which is a lot faster than our local comets. They call it a comet because it looks fuzzy. As it gets closer to the sun we will get a much better look at it.

I remember Hailey's going by in 86. Don't think I'll stick around to see it again in the 2060's.
But I remember one, that I can't remember the name of, that you could see in broad daylight.
I watched it for hours, back in the 80's also. (I thunk). That was mind boggling to see one so clear in daylight.
Kahotek or Hale-Bopp?

Don't forget the shin guards and other accoutrement's to keep other body parts protected.
Might come in handy.

Saw one that looked huge with the naked eye in the 60’s (maybe late 50’s) on the northern horizon. That was certainly a WOW moment for a kid. Made the others look sort of ho hum. Hope we get a good show.

Gawd HarvDawg. You're nearly a old as me.
Think you're maybe talkin' about Sputnik?
I remember that critter passing over.
But it went from south to north. Across the eastern skies.
Older brother freaked out, and ran and hid under the folks bed.
But then, he'd been kidnapped by aliens just a few years before.

Big difference between Sputnik and a comet.

Don't know.
Never been widgetnapped.
Hope it never happens.

And the experience would be like getting arrested in area 51.


Again.

More details about our current visitor.

https://www.space.com/interstellar-c...-oumuamua.html

The astronomers can now see a tail, and the haze around the comet is blue. They will have more than a year to study this one.

Here are more details.

https://www.space.com/interstellar-c...ks-normal.html

The scientists now have a preliminary spectra to study, and they says it looks alot like a class of local comets.

Should we go visit?

It will take a long time to catch up at that speed, so they better start soon.
