An amateur Ukrainian astronomer has spotted a comet in space. However, this comet is the natural order of the Milky Way Galaxy which also suggests that this is not from Earth’s solar system. For quite some time now, there have been quite a lot of updates regarding the meteor attacks and interstellar travels, among others.

However, the much bigger deal is about the new comet is that it is still approaching towards the Earth, even at the time of writing this. There is absolutely no reason to panic as there isn’t risk such as a comet would collide with earth.

The young astronomer, Gennady Borisov who currently works at Crimean Astrophysical Observatory was the first person to report about this comet on the 30th of August 2019. In addition to this Borisov also gave a temporary name to the comet, GB00234.

Several observatories have been keeping tabs on the comet and later they renamed the comet as C/2019 Q4. The reports suggest that from the very beginning, the orbit of the comet has been quite unusual. In addition to this, it has been following a completely hyperbolic trajectory. From the movement, the scientists deduced that the comet doesn’t originate from the known and habitable solar system.
