    The snow is actually stars. (The other streaks may be dust or cosmic rays hitting the camera sensor.)

    “The image set dates back to June 1, 2016, when the Rosetta spacecraft was orbiting Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. Rosetta had a special mission: to follow a comet as it gets closer and closer to the sun. Comets are collections of ice and dust, loosely held together. As the sun’s warmth warms a comet’s surface, the comet comes alive. Material sheds off its surface.”
