  • Q1

    Why do we see a tail in a comet?

    When comets travel, it heats up.

    Comets are not visible to our eyes.

    As they come near the sun, they develop a tail due to the melting of icy constituents and dust blown away by the solar system.

    When comets orbit the sun, it forms fire that make it visible to our eyes.
