Animation of `Oumuamua outgassing and rotating

This animation, based on an artist’s impression, shows the first interstellar object `Oumuamua. Hubble found `Oumuamua moving faster than expected. Researchers assume that venting material from its surface due to solar heating is responsible for the observed speed.

The animation also shows the tumbling motion of the object.
