Online SoVerA Meeting: An Interstellar Ambassador – Comet 2I/Borisov

June 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Margot Kuhns Schmitt

Amateurs have long contributed significantly to the field of astronomy and even today continue to find new discoveries. This past year, Crimean amateur astronomer Gennady Borisov found the first interstellar comet while using his personal observatory and a telescope he built himself. SoVerA member Margot Schmitt will discuss this discovery, how we know the comet’s origins are from outside our solar system and what new information this interstellar ambassador provides.
