THE GIANT COMET DISCOVERED KEEPS COMING TOWARD THE EARTH WITH C 2017 K2

Comets are celestial bodies with small masses and irregular orbits, they are practically snowballs, rock and frozen dust.  The comet's structure is composed of a nucleus and an unusual material - Coma and Hairy which grows in size, shines as they get closer to the Sun. In general, the nucleus is small, about 10 kilometers in diameter and is visible in the middle of the With the.  The comet's core, which is its solid portion, is enveloped in a cloud of dust called Coma Gaz.
 Now a giant comet called C 2017 K2 is coming to visit us with an estimated arrival in 2022 at perihelion in December 2022, it is almost 10 AU (astronomical units from the Sun) and is already very active and bright.  The observation was made on the 23rd and 24th of May, says the astronomer.  When it gets closer to the Sun, its ice melts, and due to its composition, it usually has a syrup.  Most comets come from the Ort cloud, a large cloud of rock and dust, as well as some remaining gases from the formation of the Sun and planets, located beyond Pluto's orbit.  Some rebels between comets and asteroids escape from the cloud and we only detect them when they approach the ground, however it is not a quick trip, the C 2017 K 2 has been en route for millions of years.  It was discovered by the panoramic research telescope and Bun stars in Hawaii in 2017. It was so far the most distant comet ever discovered, at a distance of about 2.4 billion kilometers from the Sun. news.  For the first time, we can monitor the development activity of a comet that falls from the cosmic dust cloud over an extraordinary distance.  It should become more active as it approaches the Sun and presumably will form a tail.
