Comet Hyakutake. Comet Hyakutake (1996 B2, lower right) with a display of the northern lightsor aurora borealis. Comets are formed from aball of ice and dust only a few km across. Whenthey approach the Sun some of the ice melts & isblown away by high-velocity charged particles fromthe Sun to form a tail. The tail is visible due tothe reflection of sunlight by dust and dischargesby excited gases. Charged particles from the Sunalso cause the aurora borealis. They becometrapped by the Earth's magnetic field and aredrawn to the poles where they excite atmosphericatoms. The atoms energy is released as light.Photographed in Alaska, USA on 16.4.96

Computer artwork of planets on a large explosion

Solar system planets. Computer artwork of the planets of the Solar System on a huge explosion. Clockwise from lower left, the planets are: Saturn, Mars, Pluto (a Dwarf planet), Jupiter, Mercury, Uranus, Neptune, Venus and the Earth with the Moon to its right. This could represent the Big Bang as the source of all the planets. The Big Bang is one theory to explain the formation of the Universe. It is based on the observation that everything in the visible universe is expanding from one point. It is thought that all matter was formed at this instant. The heavy materials which make up planets are thought to have been formed in stars
