  • In the Solar System there are thousands of tiny, rocky celestial bodies called asteorids. They have different shapes. Asteroids are mostly found in two regions Asteroid belt Kuiper belt Between Mars and Jupiter Beyond Neptune
  • Comets are small celestial bodies made up of ice, dust and rock. They have bright tails which point away from the Sun. We can only see the tail of a comet when it is close to the Sun.
