Comet - Comet - History: The Greek philosopher Aristotle thought that comets were dry exhalations of Earth that caught fire high in the atmosphere or similar exhalations of the planets and stars. However, the Roman philosopher Seneca thought that comets were like the planets, though in much larger orbits. He wrote: Aristotle’s view won out and persisted until , when Danish astronomer.

    This comet has since been known as Halley’s Comet. [5] The link between comets and meteor showers was proven in the late 19th century when the Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli showed that the Perseid meteor shower, which occurs every August, is caused by the path of the Earth travelling through debris left by the comet Swift-Tuttle. [6].   It extends more t astronomical units away from the Sun and contains millions of comets. (The term "astronomical unit" is a measurement, equivalent to the distance between Earth and the Sun.) Sometimes a long-period comet will come in toward the Sun and veer off into space, never to be seen again.
