What Actually Are Asteroids?

As said that there are only nine planets earlier and now they are eight planets considered and the Pluto was rejected to say that it as a planet. Well later this Pluto planet was considered as an Asteroid. Asteroid are nothing but small planets especially that revolve around the Sun in the inner Solar System. There are even planets that are a bit larger than that of Asteroids named as the planetoids. These terms asteroids and planetoids can be named to any astronomical surface or the object which all revolves all around the Sun and they should not look like that of a circular position of a planet and they should not possess the characteristics of an active comet, but there are some small planets that are discovered in the outer Solar System but their rough surfaced structure is found to be more closely resembled as that of the comets and are parted from the traditional asteroids. Thus the word asteroid has come into existence generally to specify the small surfaces of the inner Solar System till the region of Jupiter.

  • S type and
  • M type

There is only one asteroid and four Vesta which has a relatively reflective surface and they are visible to the naked eye if and only the entire sky becomes dark and it should be in a particular favorable position. But sometime and not all the times small asteroids move or pass away from close to the earth and may be visible to the naked eye for a shot period of time.
