Combined deep image of ‘Oumuamua

‘Oumuamua at the center of the image surrounded the trails of stars.

This image was created by combining multiple images from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope as well as the Gemini South Telescope. The object is marked with a blue circle and appears to be a point source, with no surrounding dust.
