Comet Leonard Views from ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter Spacecraft

Posted by in category: space

Comet Leonard streaks across the field of view of the SoloHI telescope aboard ESA/NASA’s Solar Orbiter spacecraft on Dec. 17–19, 2021. The comet’s apparent backward movement is due to the spacecraft’s relative motion.
