Bibtex entry for this abstract Preferred format for this abstract (see Preferences). A meteoroid (/ ˈ m iː t i ə r ɔɪ d /) is a small rocky or metallic body in outer space. Meteoroids are significantly smaller than asteroids, and range in size from small grains to one-meter-wide objects.
Objects smaller than this are classified as micrometeoroids or space dust. Most are fragments from comets or asteroids, whereas others are collision impact debris ejected from bodies. No “sharp line” separates asteroids and comets. In fact, some comets are also asteroids and some asteroids are also comets.

However, many comets have a higher dust content, leading them to be called "icy dirtballs". comets their origin nature and history astronomy meteorites 62 rare books on dvd huge collection on comets meteors astronomy meteorites item information another idea about cometary origins was promoted by the english astronomer raymond lyttleton in a research paper in and a book the comets and their origin in because it was known.
