Some nice footage of the object itself in this lecture here.

Interesting to note that later calculations of it's inbound trajectory placed it's perihelion with the Sun on the 9th September.

Remember last year the Sun unexpectedly repeatedly released major cme's between the 5th and 10th of September more than a full month before the Hawaian observervatory spotted Oumuamua.

For those interested this month in 2018 the Sun also released several minor cme's on it's farside whilst the Parker probe passed behind the Sun.
