Comet ISON also on the way here. It apparently originated from Oort Cloud just like some of the more recent meteors. It is a concern in my opinion that some power projects meteors and comets toward the earth.

yea, i revised my post because i thought he was talking about something else. That said, comets originate in the oort cloud... most meteors are generally just astroids from the belt between mars/jupiter... i don't think they usually come from outside the solar system... if they do, they're usually sucked up by the big boys further out.

Whenever an asteroid or something large coming through Oort clouds, these large object have gravity of its own so they shoot Oort comets and meteors like bullets toward the earth.

Jupiter bailed our ass many times. Jupiter gravity so immense that it snatches many meteors from the distance. But one asteroid did sneak through 64 million years ago.
