Summary Though comets only visit our part of the Solar System periodically, they, too, are among the celestial bodies that orbit the Sun. Find out more about their incredible journeys through space and how they came to be. Plus, read about meteors, the flying bodies of rock and ice that smash into planets throughout the Solar System. See how they have affected the shape and formation of planets, and how Earth is preparing to watch for their approach.
