What is an asteroid?
An asteroid is a small body orbiting the Sun that is composed primarily of rock or metal.
The first asteroid was Ceres, discovered by Giuseppe Piazzi in 1801.
There are currently over 600,000 known asteroids in our solar system.
Most asteroids are found orbiting in the Asteroid Belt.
Some asteroids are blown out comets. When the ice is gone, all that remains is the rocky material.
