- "That wasn't a laser blast! Something hit us!"
- ―Han Solo
An asteroid was a large solid object orbiting a star that was smaller than a planet. Asteroids could be found in asteroid fields, as well as around planets; Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jango Fett had a dogfight in an asteroid field above Geonosis. During the Galactic Civil War, Han Solo escaped from the Death Squadron by flying into the Hoth asteroid belt.
