Yes! The asteroid belt orbits the sun.

It is not inside of the Asteroid Belt in the sense of being part of it. In terms of the order of orbits from the Sun, Mars is inside the orbit of the Asteroid Belt and Jupiter's orbit is outside the orbit of the Asteroid Belt.


An asteroids orbit is often in an asteroid belt where as a comet is able to change its course when it approaches a planet. An asteroid can not do this.

The Asteroid Belt is located in between the orbit of Mars and Jupiter.


The Asteroid Belt is between the orbit on Mars and Jupiter.


Yes, the asteroid belt starts properly after the orbit of Mars.


The asteroid belt is beyond the orbit of Mars.


The asteroid belt orbits the Sun. Phobos and Deimos the moons of Mars orbit Mars.


yes they do,they orbit in a belt(the asteroid belt)between the planets Mars and Jupiter


The asteroid belt is located between the orbi of Jupiter and Mars


Eris is not an asteroid and it is not located in the asteroid belt; it is a dwarf planet, and it is beyond the orbit of Neptune, in the outer system.


Of the four planets outside of the asteroid belt, Neptune is the farthest.


No. The asteroid belt is not a single object but a collection of millions of asteroids, each with its own orbit.


No. An asteroid is a relatively large chunk of rock and/or metal in orbit around the sun. The asteroid belt is a region in the solar system between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter where the majority of the asteroids orbit.


The asteroids in the belt orbit at different durations.


The Main asteroid belt is an area where most of the asteroids orbit the Sun.


No. Comets come from beyond the asteroid belt, mostly from a region called the Kuiper Belt, beyond the orbit of Neptune.


There are no planets in the asteroid belt. One of the new IAU definitions of "planet" is that a planet will have cleared its orbit of other objects. There are four planets that orbit closer to the Sun than the asteroid belt; these are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.


No. The asteroid belt orbits the Sun just like planets do, and is located beyond the orbit of planet Mars.


There are no planets in the asteroid belt. Neptune's orbit is farther from the sun than practically all asteroids are.


Each individual member of the asteroid 'belt' is in its own elliptical orbit around the sun.


The asteroids there orbit the sun. An object that is in an orbit around another object will naturally tend to keep that orbit unless something else disturbs it. Although there are gravitational disturbances and occasional collisions within the asteroid belt, most of these disturbances are not large enough to send an asteroid's orbit out of the asteroid belt.


They could be knocked out of orbit by being hit from a comet, or a 'rogue' asteroid that's not part of the asteroid belt.


A lot of space, the orbit of Mars, the asteroid belt, the orbit of Jupiter.


Because of the Gravitational pull of Mars and Jupiter the Asteroid belt says in the same orbit. It is closer to Mars, but Jupiter has a stronger Gravitational pull, so it stays where it is.


Actually there are an place of Asteroids. Sun Mercury Venus Earth Mars ASTEROID Belt. So why I capitalized the word ASTEROID on ASTEROID Belt. Because this Belt is full of Asteroids
