COMET A chunk of frozen gasses, ice, and rocky debris that orbits the Sun. A comet nucleus< is about the size of
a mountain on earth. When a comet nears the Sun, heat vaporizes the icy material producing a cloud of gaseous
material surrounding the nucleus, called a coma. As the nucleus begins to disintegrate, it also produces a trail of
dust or dust tail in its orbital path and a gas or ion tail pointing away from the Sun. Comet comas can extend up to
a million miles from the nucleus and comet tails can be millions of miles long. There are thought to be literally
trillions of comets in our solar system out past Neptune and Pluto, but only once per decade or so does one
become near and bright enough to see easily without binoculars or a telescope.
