A comet is an icy small astronomical body that, when close enough to its star, displays a visible coma and sometimes also a tail.
In Golarion's solar system, comets are formed in the Ice Belt beyond Aucturn.
Comets appear in the holy symbols of two deities and are often seen as a portentous by at least one other.
- Dahak: A fiery comet.
- Pharasma: A comet whose tail trails out behind it to form a spiral.
- Rovagug: Orc followers of Rovagug maintain that Gormuz is the name of the first of the spawn of Rovagug, and that the arrival of a dark comet will signify its return to life.
- Xhamen-Dor: After some calamity for the Great Old One Xhamen-Dor, it was imprisoned within a comet. This comet collided with Golarion after its trajectory was altered at the time of Earthfall.
