The comet, named C/2014 UN271 or Bernardinelli-Bernstein (BB) after the discoverers Pedro Bernardinelli and Gary Bernstein, is an interstellar comet making a way towards the Sun.

Right now the comet is traveling through the Oort cloud and is moving towards the Sun at an extremely high speed of 35,000 km/h.

The comet is estimated to be around 128 kilometers wide, making it the largest comet ever spotted.
