If you’re a fan of astronomy like me, you love a good night sky display, and comets are among the greatest of showmen. They don’t disappoint. Comets are among the most spectacular celestial events, with their bright, luminous “coma” and long dust and ion tails. They can appear out of nowhere and be visible for months at a time as they travel along their paths (orbits) around the Sun, creating a breathtaking and ever-changing sight.
A Few Things About Comets
- Comets are best known for their long, streaming tails and are typically named for their discoverers.
- They are made of mostly ice, dust, and frozen forms of various gases and molecules. They form far away from the Sun where the ices don’t melt.
- They orbit the Sun in a more elliptical, or oval-shaped, path. As their path moves them closer to the Sun, they warm and begin to release their gases. The closer a comet gets to the Sun, the longer and brighter its tail will grow.
- Comets range in size from a few miles wide to the largest known size of about 85 miles wide.
