    Hubble Observes 1st Confirmed Interstellar Comet

    NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has given astronomers their best look yet at an interstellar visitor — comet 2I/Borisov — whose speed and trajectory indicate it has come from beyond our solar system. This Hubble image, taken on Oct. 12, 2019, is the sharpest view of the comet to date. Hubble reveals a central concentration of dust around the nucleus (which is too small to be seen by Hubble). Comet 2I/Borisov is only the second such interstellar object known to have passed through the solar system. In 2017, the first identified interstellar visitor, an object officially named 'Oumuamua, swung within 24 million miles of the Sun before racing out of the solar system. "Whereas 'Oumuamua appeared to be a rock, Borisov is really active, more like a normal comet. It's a puzzle why these two are so different," said David Jewitt of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), leader of the Hubble team who observed the comet

    Cucumbers resemble snakes and so therefore when you sneak up on a cat with a cucumber; they will instinctively 'freak out'

    Don't sneak up on your cat with a cucumber!

    It will lead to issues of hostility and deep resentment!

    Something silent and sneaky like a snake makes cats paranoid.
