Oumuamua (Hawaiian for ‘a messenger from afar arriving first’) was our first ever detected visitor from interstellar space and was first found using PanSTARRS. It left a trail of mystery in its wake when it zipped past in late 2017 but all but a few seem to have missed its uncanny resemblance to a chaotically tumbling baguette. With Comet 2I/Borisov - discovered by Dmitri Borisov in August 2019 - we may have not a cosmic croissant but a bowl of Borisov Borscht. Perhaps there is more galactic gastronomy for astronomy to discover!
