NASA's NEOWISE has finished its solar system survey, observing more than 100,000 asteroids, and more than 100 comets, orbiting our sun. NEOWISE is the asteroid-hunting portion of the WISE mission, or NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer. Click through these slides to go on a hunt for asteroids and comets. The colors in these images represent the different wavelengths of infrared light that the mission detects.
