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.

meteors originate in the oort cloud? how could anyone possibly know that?


Old theory.

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.

not really, there isn't anything that big in the oort cloud. the reason the oort cloud exists is because all the crap that was left over after the planets were created were ejected from the solar system by the gravity of the gas giants... alot of the larger pieces then became comets... but they have long orbits, which is why we can plot their paths and we know when they are coming, they've been following roughly the same trajectories for millions of years... it's not because we can see them... As far as I know there isn't anything massive enough in the oort cloud to sling things back into us, comets simply don't have the mass.

and many more have since... but most of the ones that make it to us originate from the belt between jupiter and mars.
