Comets & Asteroids
Facts about comets
-Just like other planets comets orbit the sun. When the comets are seen from far away it looks like the comet has a tail that is a really light color, such as a light blue and purple mix. But when the comets are able to be seen from earth they look identical as seeing comets from space because they have the same shape and it still looks like it has a tail.
-Where does the tail come from on a comet? What is the tail made of on a comet? The tail on the comet is made of gas and dust, so technically a comet has two tails. One is made of dust and the other made of gas. Also the tails of the comet mainly point away from the sun.
