solar wind The heat from the sun

The tail of a comet is formed by ice and dust that is blown off by solar winds from the nearest star. That is why the tail will always point away from the star no matter what direction the comet is traveling.

The dust and rocks that come off the comet often catch on fire and leave a trail.

When a comet nears the sun, and begins to out-gas, solar wind pushes the particles away. as the comet nears the sun, more & more particles are emitted, and the tail grows.

As the comet approaches the sun, it gets heated up, and its surface begins to turn into a gas (sublimates). The gas then escapes from the comet, and with enough force to blow away some dust and small rocks from the comet. This dust and gas is what makes the tail and also why the tail always points away from the sun (even when the comet is running from the sun, so the tail is in frount of the comet).

Although the common perception is that the tail of a comet streams out behind the comet, like dust being left behind as the comet roars through space; in reality, the tail of the comet is really the solar wind blowing the debris off of the comet. Because solar wind is coming from the direction of the sun, a comet's tail always faces away from the sun and is not necessarily "flowing" behind the comet.

The tail of a comet is basically dust, and sediment burned off of the comet itself.

When a comet passes by the sun, the heat from the sun evaporates the ice, frozen dust, and other materials in the comet, as a result, we see a "tail".

meteor showers happen when earth enters the tail of a comet.

The tail of a comet points away from the Sun.

The coma, the nucleus, and the tail are the parts of a comet after the tail has formed.

A comet is a star with a tail

In the Tail of a Comet was created on 2000-04-25.

The tail of the comet is not the coma, it is just called the tail. The coma is the fuzzy, bullet like head of the comet.

One tail of a comet is the dust tail the other is the ice tail. And as the comet gets closer to the sun the solar wind blows on the comet as it is evaporating.

yes it does have a tail

The tail of a comet is always pointing directly away from the sun.

The three main parts of a comet are the nucleus, coma, and tail. The nucleus is the head of the comet, the coma is the middle, and the tail is the end of the comet.

The tail of a comet is luminous because it scatters and reflects the light from the sun.

The comet's tail is in front of the comet, not after

== == The 3 main parts of a comet are the Nucleus, Coma, and the tail. The Nucleus is the head of the comet, the Coma is the middle & the tail is the end of the comet.

Solar wind - i.e., particles coming from the Sun.

Away from the Sun. It is pushed away from the Sun by the solar wind. The direction of movement of the comet has nothing to do with the direction of its tail - the tail may well be "in front of" the comet, if the comet goes away from the Sun.

a comet gets a tail as it gets closer to the sun, due to solar winds.

Behind the comet because when the gasses behindthe comet are burned the tail is formed

A comet is a space thing that has a heavenly body and a tail. The most famous comet known is Hailey's comet.
