Inbound from the Oort Cloud, its ion tail is a shade of pretty blue.
Wow you are an total idiot aren't you.... When the something is closer
in the foreground than it is in the background that means that is
moving AWAY from you.....
No it does NOT..... If part of an object is bigger that means it is

Or were you too fucking stupid to realize that?
A comet's tail always trails away from the Sun
regardless of the trajectory of the comet itself.

I think Andrew's subject line may be confusing. We are not
seeing this object "in the Oort cloud". We can't even see
the Oort cloud -- dark objects 100,000 AUs away from us.
It's a hypothesis, one that makes sense of phenomena, but
not something that has been directly observed.
At the time the photo was taken, the object was 3 AUs out,
somewhere between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
Andrew took the line "inbound from the Oort could" from the
description at the Astronomy Picture of the Day's site. I'd
suggest he might want to leave the descriptions on in the future.
