How long does it take for a comet to orbit the sun?
That all depends on the comet Halley's takes about 76 years where as Hale Bopp takes about 2300 years. Its the same principle with the planets the closer the orbit the faster it goes. Some Comets like Hale Bopp come from the Oort cloud about a light year away that is why it takes so long, where as Halley's goes out round Pluto and back again.

Venus orbits the sun in approximately 225 Earth days. (224.70069 days) Strange as it may seem, Venus rotates so slowly that a "day" on Venus is longer than its year. It takes Venus about 243 Earth days to spin once on its axis. The slow rotation is also in a "retrograde" (clockwise) direction, fr…om east to west. how long does it take for venus to orbit the sun ( Full Answer )
The orbital period for Neptune is roughly 60,190 days orabout 165 Earth years (164.79 Earth years). Neptune takes 60,190 earth days or 164.79 earth years to completeone rotation around the sun.
Pluto's year - the period of its revolution around the Sun is90,581 Earth days, roughly 248 Earth years.
It takes Venus about 225 Earth days (224.70069 days) or about 0.6152 Earth years to make an orbit of the Sun. That's a bit over 7 Earth months. Venus spins slowly clockwise as seen from its north pole, so the rotation period (Venus day) is actually longer than its year, taking about 243 Earth d…ays.

Each planet orbits the Sun in what is referred to as their year. Because they are moving a different speeds and are at different distances, the length of time will vary. The Earth makes one revolution in what we call a year (365.25 days). Mercury is the shortest, taking a little under 88 Earth da…ys to make a revolution. Neptune is the longest taking almost 165 Earth Years to make a revolution. The others, in terms of Earth years: Venus - 0.61 years (224.7 days) Mars - 1.88 years (687 days) Jupiter - 11.86 years (4332.6 days) Saturn - 29.46 years (10759.2 days) Uranus - 84.32 years (30799 days) ( Full Answer )
The Sun does not orbit the Earth. It takes the Earth one year to orbit the Sun.
Jupiter takes 4332 Earth days, just under 12 Earth years (11.85 years) to make a single orbit of the Sun. 11.9 Earth years ~11.86 years
Halley's Comet passes through the inner solar system about every 75 to 76 years. (~75.3 years). It has been observed since about 240 BC, and appeared in April, 1910, and February, 1986.
Answer . Halley's Comet has an average 76-year orbit. It's last visit was in 1986 and it's next scheduled visit is in 2062.
It depends on how big the orbit and the comet , almost every comet is different.
Hyakutake is a long-period comet. Before its most recent passage through the solar system, its orbital period was about 17,000 years, but the gravitational influence of the giant planets has increased this period to 102,070 years.

The Sun does not orbit the Earth, the Earth orbits the sun. It takes abut 365.25 days for the Earth to orbit the Sun.
The Sun orbits around the galactic center of the Milky Way Galaxyand takes about 230 million Earth years to complete one GalacticYear. The Sun orbits the Milky Way Galaxy once about every two hundredtwenty five million (225,000,000) years.
The sun orbits around the center of the galaxy. The orbital period is approximately 235 million years.
The only natural body that orbits the earth is the moon. Any comets that are permanent members of the solar system orbit the sun, with periods ranging from a few years to thousands of years.
1 year. 12 months. Almost 365 days. Actually, the earth revolvesaround the sun in between 365 and 366 days. 365.25, 365 days 6hours, or 365 1/4 is closer to a year. Closer still is 365.2425, 365 days 5 hours 49 minutes 12 seconds,or 365 97/400. That comes about because our calendar has 97 leapyear…s in each cycle of 400 years and it's accurate enough for thenext 3000 years. One year, or approximately 365.25 solar days (the Julian year). The Earth orbits the sun counterclockwise as seen from the arbitrary "north" pole, at a speed of 107,218 km/hr (66,622 mph). One year. The definition of a 'year' is actually the amount of time it takes for the Earth to orbit the Sun, which takes about 365-1/4 days! So that our calendars can catch-up with the actual distance the Earth has travelled to complete its orbit around the Sun, every 4 years we have to have a "leap year" which has one extra day. That extra day is always a February 29. However the "century" years (1900, 2000, 2100...) are not leap years - they don't have a February 29 - because, if that day were added, the result would be one extra day too much! That is the reason we have to say the Earth orbits the Sun in "about" 356-1/4 days. Putting it another way: every 100 years the total time period we get by adding all those February 29's in the leap years ends up being just right, so no extra day is necessary in a "century" year. It takes about 365.25 days (365.256366 days), the period of time that we call "year". Exactly a year. It takes the Earth "one year" to orbit the Sun, about 365.25 Earthdays. Other planets and objects will have a different "year" which isnormally a longer time as the distance from the Sun increases. Theplanet Mercury takes only 88 Earth days, while the most distantplanet, Neptune, takes about 60,190 Earth days (nearly 165 years)to complete a single solar orbit. It takes Earth about 365 1/4 days . That is why we have leap yearevery four years , to make up for that extra 1/4 day and keep thecalendar in line with the seasons. 1 year ( Full Answer )
It takes 4,332 days for Jupiter to orbit the sun. This isequivalent to 11.86 earth years and it covers a distance of 778million kilometers to complete the orbit.
The planet Earth, on which we live, takes one year to orbit the sun. it takes 365 1/4 day for the earth to orbit the sun that's why every four years there is a February 29th!
365 and 1/4 days to complete 1 revolution around the sun. It takes the earth 365 days to orbit the sun According to NASA, earth takes 365 days 6 hours 9 minutes 9.54 seconds to circle the sun. This length of time is called a sidereal year. This also gives rise for the need for leap year, which… adds an additional day to the calendar every four years. ( Full Answer )
Each planet in the solar system has a different orbital period, corresponding to the different sizes of their elliptical orbits. For the Earth, the present orbital period is 365.25636 days. (rounded)
it takes saturne 50 years to orbit the sun actually i dont know but hi mom im on the internet
No two comets are the same, and you haven't mentioned which one you're interested in.
Never. The sun does not orbit Neptune. Neptune orbits the sun every 165 Earth years (60,190 days).
None. The sun can't orbit it's self as nothing can orbit it's self. However, the Sun does spin on its axis, much like the Earth does. This takes about 25 days at the equator, and closer to 33 days near the poles.
Europa is a moon of Jupiter, so it orbits the Sun (on average) inthe same period of time as the planet, which is about 4332.6 Earthdays or 11.86 Earth years. Europa makes one orbit of Jupiter about every 3.55 Earth days.
it depends if you mean one that was in the asteroid belt if so then its about 3AU away and if earth is about an AU away from the sun then i would say it takes around 2 to 5 earth years to make one full revolution.
Halley's Comet is orbiting the sun with a period that varies from 75 to 77 years. The comet has so little mass that its orbit is easily changed when it passes close to the planets on its way around.
Short term comets are comets that make one orbit every 200 years or less, some very short term comets can orbit once every 20 years or less. Long term comets may take anything between 200 years to thousands, tens of thousands or millions of years to make one orbit of the sun.

Halley's Comet is in orbit around the sun. Venus may disturb and slightly modify its orbit during one of Halley's close approaches through the inner solar system, but has not captured it yet.
The farther an object is from the Sun, the longer it takes for an orbit. Comets come from far, far away - pressumably, from an "Oort Cloud" that orbits the Sun at a distance of about a light-year from the Sun. Some of them approach the Earth, and some of them get trapped, especially by action of the… larger planets, but they still have a large orbit.. \n ( Full Answer )
A year The time it takes any astronomical body to orbit the sun is that bodies year. By definition. The year may be of different lengths of time depending on the distance from the sun. But it is still the local year
NO one knows what on earth eath means. So who ever asked this question is really stupid. Sorry but you are.
No answer The Sun does not orbit Pluto Pluto orbits the Sun, which takes about 248 years.
Uranus takes about 84 years and 4 months to make one orbit of the sun.
If you mean earth, then it takes one year for the earth to orbit the sun
Anywhere from about two years to millions of years. The ones we can name all have orbits of about one human lifespan.
I can't be sure but I don't think so. I'm not an expert so this isn't a very pro answer!
Juliet is a moon of Uranus. It will orbit the Sun in the same time as Uranus. See related question.
Mercury takes about 88 DAYS (only 88 days, mind you) to orbit the Sun. If you are 10 years old, you would be 40 years old in Mercury. Mercury is very fast because it is closest to the Sun. It has to travel only 57.9 million km around the Sun, but compare that to the 150 million km the Earth has to m…ake. ( Full Answer )
