It points away from the Sun
A comets tail is pushes away from the sun by solar winds .This also means that the tail can be in front or behind the comet
it is the time when the tail is facing the north of the other comets like this <halleys tail is north of the other comets when they go > this way
in the opposite direction that the comet is heading
Only by accident. A comet's tail will point away from the sun.
The tail of a comet points AWAY from the Sun regardless of the direction of the comets motion because of solar wind
Away from the Sun. The tails is caused by the solar wind.
It points away from the Sun - no matter in what direction the comet is moving.
a ion tail or a dust tail
Does it? 2nd Answer: Of course comets tails point away from the Sun!!! The "tail" is made of varying sizes of ice particles and chunks. The solar wind (a faint outstreaming of solar material) pushes comets' tails out, away from the sun.
no, comets only have one tail
the solar wind is blowing on the comets gasses
Comets are made of mainly 3 parts -dust tail, ion tail and coma
No. Comets tails always point away from the sun. I believe the are a result of the heat and solar winds projected out from the sun which strip material off from the comet as it travels through space.
Yes, the tail is the debris from the comet left behind
A Comets tail points away from the sun.
No, comets have tails due to solar radiation subliming ices and other volatile substances into a temporary atmosphere that is tail shaped due to the comets velocity.
A comet is comprised mostly of ice. The tail of the comet is caused by cosmic winds, from our sun, blasting particles off the comet's surface, the tail does NOT point in the opposite direction of travel, as one might expect, but points directly away from the source of the solar winds. That's why a comets tail, (from our perspective) may be traveling in a certain direction but have it's tail pointing in the SAME direction.
From the earth we see comets as shooting stars, because theres a tail to it.
