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

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


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


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


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


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.


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


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


Comets move all over the Solar System, and there are many of them, so sooner or later, you would expect one of them getting close to Earth.


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


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.)


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


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.

Asteroids and comets have several similarities. They are both made of rocks and assorted materials, and they both come fairly close to Earth on a regular basis.


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.


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.


Comets can actually be visible in the sky for up to a few hours, depending on how close they actually get to Earth.


Yes you can see comets sometimes with your eyes only,IF its close enough to Earth. :3


It is in 2022 when Jupiter will come close to earth.


earth the comets to go


They are at all distances, in principle, but on average they are further out than the Earth. When they come close to the Sun they move fast and swing out again quickly. Some comets spend most of their time much further out than Neptune.


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.


Yes,when they are close enough to Earth and it is clear out.


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


what planet's resources might come close with earth
