A comet is an icy small astronomical body that, when close enough to its star, displays a visible coma and sometimes also a tail.[1]

Near Golarion

In Golarion's solar system, comets are formed in the Ice Belt beyond Aucturn.[2]

In religion

Comets appear in the holy symbols of two deities and are often seen as a portentous by at least one other.

Holy symbols

  • Dahak: A fiery comet.
  • Pharasma: A comet whose tail trails out behind it to form a spiral.
