Animation of `Oumuamua passing through the Solar System

This animation shows the path of the interstellar object `Oumuamua through the Solar System. Unlike all other asteroids and comets observed before, this body is not bound by gravity to the Sun. It has come from interstellar space and will return there after its brief encounter with our Solar System. Its hyperbolic orbit is highly inclined and it does not appear to have come close to any other Solar System body on its way in.
