Outside, about twice as far as Jupiter (also outside). The asteroid belt is between Mars and Jupiter.


No, the asteroid belt orbits the Sun somewhere beyond Mars, but not as far as Jupiter.


The asteroid belt is located between Mars and Jupiter, It's a couple of million miles away.


Ceres. It is by far the largest object in the asteroid belt, between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.


inner Outside, about twice as far as Jupiter (also outside). The asteroid belt is between Mars and Jupiter.


It is not that far away. The asteroid belt lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.


Mercury is not a part of the asteroid belt. The asteroid belt is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Mercury is far closer to the sun.


There are lot's of asteroids and each one is a different distance from the sun. Between Mars and Jupiter is the Asteroid belt. Is that what you mean?


Mars is located 227.9x106km (or 1.52AU) from the sun, and the asteroid belt is located 300-600x106km (or 2-4AU) from the sun.


Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter are outer planets. If the planet is on the opposite side of the Asteroid Belt, (away from the Sun), between Mars and Jupiter, it is an outer planet. If it is on the inside of the Asteroid Belt; Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury, it is an Inner planet. Neptune is an Outer Planet. It is far away from the Asteroid Belt, on the outer side of the solar system.


There seems to only be one major asteroid belt in our solar system. In-between Mars and Jupiter. Edit: There are technically 4. "The asteroid belt" between Mars and Jupiter, the "Greeks and Trojans" that follow along Jupiter's elliptical, the Kuiper belt, the final one, is quite far out and though it is effected by our Sun's gravity. It is called the Oort field and orbits between 5,000 and 100,000 AU's from our solar system.


Ceres, now classified as a dwarf planet, is by far the largest asteroid.If Ceres is not considered, the asteroid Vesta, about 1/4 the mass of Ceres, is the largest asteroid. Both these and most other larger asteroids are located in the main Belt between Mars and Jupiter.


We generally think of asteroids as being in the "asteroid belt" between Mars and Jupiter. But there's reason to believe that there may be far more asteroid-like objects in the distant solar system, in the Kuiper Belt. But they are so far away, and so far from the Sun, that it's very difficult to see them at all.


An asteroid is a rock that is orbiting out in space. There is an asteroid belt located between Mars and Jupiter. It is nearly 3 AU away from the Earth. An AU is just over 92 million miles, so this gives some idea of the actual distance.


It's difficult to be precise as the asteroids are spread about quite a lot. [See related link] The main belt starts just after Mars and finishes half way to Jupiter, but fragments called the Trojans, lie in the orbit of Jupiter. So; for a ball park figure, the asteroid belt starts at about 90 million kilometers (56 Million miles) from Earth.


Far outside the asteroid belt, which lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, we find the Kuiper belt. This collection of materials lies beyond the orbit of Neptune (at about 30 AU) out to about 55 AU. Use the links below to learn more.


ANSWERThe belt you are probably thinking of is the one between mars and Jupiter, there really is no name for it. Astronomers just refer to it as the main belt.ANSWERThat belt above is commonly called The Asteroid Belt. also sometimes called the Main Asteroid belt. The Cometary Belt is in the Oort CloudThe Solar System is home to two main belts of small bodies. The asteroid belt, which lies between Mars and Jupiter, is composed mainly of rock and metal. The Kuiper belt, which lies beyond Neptune's orbit, is composed mostly of ices. The Oort cloud, which acts as the source for long-period comets, exists at a distance that may be as far as thousand times beyond either of these two more well known belts.


Mars and Jupiter are separated by an asteroid belt. The distance between them is 3.7 AUs (Astronomical Units). One AU is equal to the distance between the sun and the earth. 1 AU = 150 million kilometres (93 million miles) 3.7 AU = 555 million km (344 million miles)


i imagen that the asteroid belt is very cold seeing that it not that far fromt the sun


There are five bodies currently classified as dwarf planets. All of the except for Ceres are beyond the orbit of Neptune, with their orbits extending into the Kuiper belt. Ceres is the smallest of the dwarf planets, but far closer. It is in the asteroid belt between the orbit of Mars and Jupiter.

As far as we know there is not a asteroid headed for mars. but there might be actually, there's no evidence to prove the answer.


The asteroid belt [See Link] is the region of the Solar System located roughly between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter. Contrary to popular belief (helped by Hollywood and computer game manufacturers), the asteroid belt is mostly empty. The asteroids are spread over such a large area that it would be highly improbable to reach an asteroid without careful aiming. The asteroid belt includes the dwarf planet Ceres [See Link]. It's impossible to give a precise distance, as the belt starts around the orbit of Mars [See Link] and continues up to Jupiter's. However the centre of the belt is approximately 2.7 AU (404 million km (251 million miles)) from the Sun.


Earth and Venus are the closest, as the distance to Jupiter is extremely far.---Earth is the closest, at a minimum of 54.6 million kilometers or 33.9 million miles(this minimum very rarely occurs).Venus is next closest at a minimum of 97.7 million kilometers.Jupiter is at a minimum of 491.4 million kilometers, as it is on the other side of the the Main Asteroid Belt, which is immediately adjacent to Mars. The distance from Mars to the asteroid (dwarf planet) Ceres is a minimum of 132 million kilometers.


Mars is too far from Jupiter to be significantly affected by its gravity.
