Write a short note on the other celestial bodies (asteroids, meteoroids and comets) in the solar system.


Asteroids- Asteroids are rocky, space objects that orbit our Sun. These can be a few feet wide to several hundred miles wide. Asteroid can only be seen through large telescope.

Meteoroid- Meteoroids are little chunks of rock and debris in space. They become meteors or shooting stars when they fall through the earth’s atmosphere, leaving a bright trail as they are heated by the friction of the atmosphere.

Comets- Comets are the small bodies with a head and long luminous tail. They are made up of dust and frozen gases. They appear in the sky after a long period.
