We describe properties and gravitational interactions of meteor-mass and greater compact ultra dense objects with nuclear density or greater (CUDOs). We discuss possible enclosure of CUDOs in comets and the stability of these objects on impact with the Earth and Sun showing that the hypothesis of a CUDO core helps resolve issues challenging the understanding of a few selected cometary impacts.
