1000 Lightyears from Earth
'Oumuamua avant la lettre'. One of my earliest works, from 1968: City on a large rock flying through space.
Oumuamua is the first interstellar object detected passing through the Solar System and was discovered by Robert Weryk using the Pan-STARRS telescope at Haleakalā Observatory, Hawaii, on 19 October 2017, approximately 40 days after it passed its closest point to the Sun on 9 September.
The name comes from Hawaiian ʻoumuamua 'scout' and reflects the way the object is like a scout or messenger sent from the distant past to reach out to humanity.
