Satisfactory Essays
The asteroid belt is a huge orbit of asteroids. Its located between mars and jupiter. Most of our solar systems asteroids are in the asteroid belt, but some escaped or got knocked out. Asteroids come in all different shapes and sizes, most are the size of a pebble. Ceres, Vesta, Pallas, and Hygiea are the four biggest asteroids. Ceres is actually considered a dwarf planet. Some people think that if you combine all the asteroids it would create a small, rocky, planet, but astronomers say it would make a planet smaller then earths moon. Suprizingly the asteroids are pretty far apart. If you stood on a asteroid then you would barely be able to see any other asteroids.
