COMETSComets are balls of leftover rock and ice that were originally part of a nebula formed when a star exploded into a supernova. These balls didn't form into planets when most of the material in our nebula merged together, about 4.5 billion years ago. Instead, the comets kept on circling around the Sun on their own.


Meteoroids could be tiny particles left behind by a comet or can even be an asteroid. Meteoroids are in orbit around the Sun.


Most people are familiar with the term "shooting star," but few know its importance. Actually, it is not a star shooting across the sky, but a small piece of solid matter called a meteoroid colliding with the atmosphere. As the meteoroid enters the Earth's atmosphere, the friction created by its incoming velocity causes its surface to heat up, and the flash of light records the passage of a meteor.



Comets, asteroids, meteoroids, meteors, and meteorites are all different. They also have some similarities. They're all different because they all don't have the same features or do the same things. Our blog explains what they do. They're also made out of different things. They're the same because they all are in outerspace. They all can land on our Earth, though. Meteoroids, meteors, and meteorites are all related.
