Comet

A bright, icy celestial body pursuing an eccentric, often extremely lengthy orbit of the Sun. The luminous "tail" of the comet, comprising meteoric material and gases, streams into space due to the heat of the Sun. Traditionally, comets are considered to be ill-omens because they seem to break the natural order of the cosmos.
