Astroids are huge rocks but all the astroids don't look the same.
Asteroids, sometimes called minor planets or planetoids, are small rocky bodies in orbit around the Sun, especially in the inner Solar System; they are smaller than planets bu…t larger than meteoroids. The term "asteroid" has historically been applied primarily to minor planets of the inner Solar System, as the outer Solar System was poorly known when it came into common usage. Most known asteroids are found in the Main Belt between Mars and Jupiter, or in the Kuiper Belt past the orbit of Neptune. But there are thousands that orbit at least as close to the Sun as Earth. The vast majority of asteroids are smaller than 1 kilometer in diameter. The largest asteroid in the Main Belt is Ceres, which has been designated a dwarf planet. The distinction between asteroids and comets is made on visual appearance: comets show a perceptible lighted envelope or aura while asteroids do not. This is caused by the release of volatile substances, mostly frozen gases, from the comets' interiors. Asteroids are rocky fragments left over from the formation of the solar system (about 4.6 billion years ago!). They can be found orbiting the sun in an area between Mars and Jupiter called the "Asteroid Belt". This asteroid belt, or "main belt" contains probably millions of asteroids. Asteroids get their name from the Greek word that means "star-like", a misnomer now considering today's scientific classifications made from our new space data. Asteroids are actually more appropriately referred to by astronomers and other scientists as "minor planets" or "planetoids" (which means "planet-like"). Some facts about asteroids: Asteroids are celestial bodies/objects that are in the solar system. An asteroid orbits the planets and sun and moon as a "mid-sized celestial object" - from 10 meters to 1000 km in diameter. They are a mixture of stone, heavy and light elements, and possibly gasses (in solid, liquid, frozen, or plasma states/organic/inorganic).One will often have meteoroid clouds nearby or trailing them (may be considered as comets).It may be moving either in orbit around another celestial object or floating or traveling on its own accord. They are also called minor planets, planetoids, centaursClassifications of smaller asteroids are:C-type, carbonaceous S-type, siliceous M-type, metallic There are many good reference sources on the Internet about asteroids.

Asteroids are orbiting bodies that are made up of rocks. Asteroids can be small or very large with lengths of 600 miles.
Asteriods are giant rocks in the solar system that are a threat if the come really close to earth.
An asteroid is a gray and brown.
Asteroids are normally gray but when their age they start changing color to dark red and black.
asteroid are really just space rocks so they are kind of a muddy brown and a sort of black colour. i am an eleven year old girl.
The Asteroid belt is Black-Brown
a dark or light brown with craters which are black in side
An asteroid can be about grayish or a mixture of brown and yellow.
Usually a grayish- reddish color
The Milky Way Galaxy is made up of all of the mentioned (with slight adjustments) but the major contributor is stars.
An Asteroid got its color from the dust that was left from collisions with other objects in space.
It depends on the composition of the asteroid, but generally black or dark gray. Perhaps a little red or orange, if there is any surface iron.
Many asteroids are the remnants of planets which never got to the size of a full planet. Others are chunks of rock from a celestial object's surface, torn apart by collisions.…
Asteroids are minor planets. They also called planetoids. They are large piece of rocks. They revolve around the sun. In a vast ring between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter… most of the asteroids lie.
