The Oort Cloud

The Oort Cloud is a 0.8 light-year distant group of icy and rocky bodies that scientists have never seen. The worlds do not emit their own light and are so small and distant that their reflected light is minuscule. However, scientists believe this is where long-period comets originate. The Oort Cloud objects total some 5 times Earth’s mass.
