The 2I in the name 2I/Borisov refers to its status as the second interstellar object ever discovered. The interstellar comet will not come any closer than 2 AU to the Earth, according to the IAU.
The first interstellar comet and the second interstellar object to enter our Solar System in modern history, it was originally discovered by a telescope maker with a solid history of newly-identified comets. Scientists will spend the next few months studying the comet before it returns to the vastness of space.
