Actually, comets don't come down,
A celestial body, observed only in that part of its orbit that is relatively close to the sun, having a head consisting of a solid nucleus surrounded by a nebulous coma up to 2.4 million kilometers (1.5 million miles) in diameter and an elongated curved vapor tail arising from the coma when sufficiently close to the sun. Comets are thought to consist chiefly of ammonia, methane, carbon dioxide, and water.
I think you might be confusing it with:
1. (astronomy) any of the small solid extraterrestrial bodies that hits the earth's atmosphere [syn: meteoroid]
2. a streak of light in the sky at night that results when a meteoroid hits the earth's atmosphere and air friction causes the meteoroid to melt or vaporize or explode
Maybe you should try cracking open a book in class instead of spending all your time at school on here!
