You're fishing for "comet", but the setup of your riddle is defective.

-- A comet need not necessarily be in orbit around the sun.

Its appearance may be a once-in-eternity event.

-- A comet only has a 'tail' during the small portion of its orbit

when it's relatively near the sun.

-- The whole notion of a "tail" is misleading. That particular whatchamacallit

always points away from the sun, so when the comet has rounded the sun

and is headed out again, the so-called 'tail' goes in front of it.

What are comets and what is their orbit like?

Comets are small bodies of rock and ice which are in a highly eccentric orbit around the sun. They spend most of their time slowly orbiting the sun, far out beyond the outer planets. Their orbit eventually comes close to the sun, where the surface is heated and gives the comet its tails. They are thought to be objects from the Kuiper belt, a group of icy rocks far out beyond the orbit of Neptune. Gravitational effects of the planets and other objects may knock these off their regular orbits into the highly eccentric comet orbit.
