This illustration depicts the immensity of the Oort cloud. The radius is approximately 30 trillion kilometers, the Sun being the center point. Trillions of icy objects travel this region, ancient relics of the primordial solar nebula from which the solar system was formed, and the source of future long-period comets to the inner solar system.
