A new comet was recently discovered with something special about it, it is expected to be
from another solar system. For reference, our solar system goes from our sun to an area called
the Heliopause, which is where the sun’s solar winds meet that of other stars. Scientists
discovered this comet from noticing the light of other stars getting blocked by this comet. It was
discovered Nasa’s Kepler Space Telescope. Scientists looked for something out of the ordinary.
This is special because this is the first object scientists can observe from outside our solar
system. This opens up new possibilities for cosmic research and could tell us about the nature of
other solar systems.
