A comet could concievably pass close enough to the earth to be pulled in by its gravity. We would experience as a meteor or meteorite

Yes, comets come very close to the Earth each year. These comets can be seen passing by the Earth with a telescope.


Comets often come quite unexpectedly. Some periodic comets are known; it can be estimated when they come back. But many comets come to Earth once, and may come back after millions of years, or perhaps never.Comets often come quite unexpectedly.

Comets come to the inner Solar System - i.e., close to Earth - all the time.


From gravitational attraction.


Comets come toward earth during their orbits. They are drawn toward the sun by gravity and sometimes cross earth's orbital path in the process.


This depends on the comet. Some comets come fairly close to Earth, and some have come VERY close to the Earth. We believe that some comets have actually struck the Earth in the distant past.Most comets spend the vast majority of their time far away for the Sun and the Earth, and it is a rare occurrence for more than one comet to be visible at one time.


earth the comets to go


No - but some do come close, they orbit a sun


Some do, some do not. Both have in the past hit the Earth.


Comets come from the coldest parts of the universe and contain ice and organic materials. Scientists believe that impacts from comets on earth are responsible for contributing to organic materials and possibly life on earth.


During the course of a typical year, something like 10 or 12 comets come within the range of amateur telescopes.


Few comets and meteoroids come from the sky and hit earth. or hail


No. Comets that we see in the sky were only passing by in earth.


As far as we know, no rogue planet has ever come near Earth. Comets and asteroids have come near Earth, but not actual planets.


Probably from comets hitting Earth after it solidified.


Yes it is believed that comets have hit the Earth in the past.


Comets have their own orbits in our solar system around the sun. They don't come close to the earth.


no, comets do not orbit Earth. If comets did orbit Earth, it would be Earths Moon's, but comets orbit the kuiper belt at the edge of the Solar System. Some times comets hit each other and get knocked out of their orbit and possibly hit a planet.


Yes; some come close enough to crash with planet Earth - as was the case, for example, in the Tunguska (Siberia) in the year 1908.


Comets can be seen from Earth only part of the time, when they are close enough to the Sun.


It is possible for comets and asteroids to hit Earth, but they are extremely rare events.


Some comets can be seen without any mechanical help if they are large enough or come close to the earth. Any sort of telescope will help you see more comets if you know where to look and what to look for.


Comets are difficult to predict; we currently know of no comets that will be visible in 2012, but new ones are discovered periodically. No asteroids that we are aware of will approach the Earth very closely before April 13, 2029, when the asteroid Apophis will come fairly close the Earth. (But it will miss.)


Comets are different from us because this a %^@@%^&_+)( question


You can only see them at night, you can only see them if Earth is facing that way and you can only see them if they come near Earth.
