The Gemini Observatory in Hawaii has captured an image of what said to be the second known interstellar comet hurtling through our solar system. With additional visual details, the observatory also says they have even more evidence to prove that the object is a comet, dubbed C/2019 Q4, and has a 'pronounced tail' that they believe is indicative of 'outgassing' - the release of frozen gasses on the comet.
