Comet C/2022 E3 was discovered in March 2022 and its orbital period is about 50,000 years. What looks like a hot star from the outside is actually a dirty snowball of water ice, dust, gas and carbon. Its home is the so called Kuiper Belt or the Oort Cloud, which is located at the edge of our solar system.
