Outside our solar system, said to have come from the Oort Cloud.

Most of them are moving slowly out beyond the orbit of Neptune, in the kuiper belt. Longer term comets are thought to also be as far out as the Oort cloud.

most comets travel near the oort belt.

Out of Stars, Comets, Asteroids, Galaxies, Planets and Moons. Only Comets, Asteroids, Planets and Moons are located in the solar system.

The Oort cloud has been theorized as the probable location from which comets originate.

comets are large balls of gas and ice that are flying round in space. :-)

There is no specific collective noun for 'comet', most likely because comets are rarely found in groups. However, it is possible to have a cluster or comets, a series of comets, or (as is theorized) a cloud of comets.

No. Most comets are about the same age as the solar system as they formed with it.

comets are on the outside of the solor system but loop in from the sun I believe from astronimical studies in 8th grade, (which my annoying science teacher practically crammed down my throat for a couple of months) there is a large belt of comets just past Pluto.

Halley's comet and Giotto's comet are some of the most well known comets.

All the comets that have been seen in history were in the solar system and most still are.

They come from the outer rings of our Solar System to the inner rings.

Comets can be located anywhere, but the further you get away from the sun, the more common they are (they are made up of ice and cold rock).

Earth is much more massive than asteroids and comets, and thefore has much stronger gravity, which pulls it into a spherical shape. Most asteroids and comets do not have strong enough gravity to do this.

Not all comets orbit the sun, although most do. When they do orbit the Sun their orbit tends to be oval.

All orbits are elliptical, no matter what kind of object it is. For comets, the orbits are VERY elliptical.

Comets were most likely made on day 4 of creation when God created the sun,moon and stars.

well, comets, because of the speed they have, most of them turn into fire. but there are some cases in wich they do´nt.

they are most likely to be found in uranus

All comets are found before sunrise or sunset. As a general rule comets are not visible in day light so they would be found after sunset

around the sun thank you for tuning in!! rock hard
