Having access now to now. And this is over amazing! Here are some test runs:

Comets are balls of dust and ice (ice being water ice, methane, and other frozen gasses). Some, like C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) are long period comets, believed to originate from a large cloud of comets around our solar system known as the Oort Cloud.
