Let me tell you what each words mean here.

1) NEBULA- It is a cloud of gas and dust as seen in outer space. Mostly visible during night time as an indistinct white patch.

2) COMETS- A comet is an icy small solar system body that when passing close to the sun heats up and begin to outgas.

3) ASTEROID- A small rocky body orbiting the sun. Large number of these, ranging enormously in size are found in between the orbit of mars and jupiter.

4) CORONA - It is the luminous plasma "asmosphere" of sun and the other celestial bodies extending millions of kilometer in space.
