comet ☄️

The Comet emoji is coming your way! Here we have an emoji showing a large rock formation moving fast enough for a tail of gas and dust to follow behind it. The comet emoji belongs to a group of astronomy emojis featuring the Milky Way emoji, Ringed Planet emoji, and many more.

Comets are made of ice-like substances. Their nucleus, its icy center, is surrounded by coma, the large cloud of gas that follows it. Comets have an orbital period around the Sun. This is why some comets appear repeatedly on Earth.

Using the comet emoji implies that something magical has just happened or will be happening soon. This is because comets themselves are often described to be magical. It could also apply to the famous comets becoming visible to Earth once every 200 years or earlier. An example of these comets is Halley’s Comet. Just like how people wait outside to view the eclipse, Halley’s Comet is also an event people often wait for outside.

☄️ Comet is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 1.1 which was introduced in 1993, and was added to Emoji 1.0.
