An asteroid, also known as a minor planet, is an irregularly shaped rock that orbits the Sun mainly between Mars and Jupiter in the Asteroid Belt. Some moons are captured asteroids (like Phobos and Deimos). Planets and moons sometimes get impacted by asteroids, forming huge impact craters on their surfaces.
