WHAT IS THE OORT CLOUDS The Oort cloud is a cloud of debris that is in our outer solar system. The cloud is mostly made up of small rock and dust particles. It is also made up of large rocks that are from debris in the cloud clumping together.
HOW WAS THE OORT CLOUDCREATED The Oort cloud was created by the left over debris from the period of time when the planets were being formed. The Oort cloud was created with the left over dust/rock particles that never quite made a planet.
FUN FACTS ABOUT THE OORTCLOUD Saturn and Jupiter hold the Oort cloud together. The Oort cloud gets most of its light from another star, not the sun. If the Oort cloud was clumped together it would be about the size of Jupiter and Saturn combined. The Oort cloud was discovered in 1950 by Jan Oort.
