[Science] Feast your eyes on the first interstellar comet ever directly observed The solar system has another interstellar visitor, but there's no question of this one being an alien spacecraft. It's a true comet and the first we've ever confirmed comes from interstellar space, and the Hubble Space Telescope captured some amazing imagery of it. Good thing, too — because it's never coming back. Published:10/16/2019 5:07:15 PM
